Back Country Fly Fishing and Camping Trips

Posted by on June 11, 2015

Back country fly fishing and camping trips in Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee.  Last week Jalen and I had the pleasure of guiding Tristan, Austin and Ed on an overnight backcountry fly fishing and camping trip to Hazel Creek located in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

The weather and the fishing were absolutely fantastic.  The group landed some beautiful rainbows and a few brown trout.  We even had a few bear sightings.

Even though this area is now closed due to bear activity we still offer back country trips to several locations in the park including Eagle Creek and Forney Creek.  These trips are really popular this time of year so book early to ensure you get the dates you want.  We ask that most trips try to book at least one month in advance.


Book with us and we will even pack the cots to make your night even more comfortable.
