Spring is right around the corner and the smallmouth bass action will begin to heat up. Hookers Fly Shop offers both wade and float trips in the Western North Carolina area, including the Little Tennessee River and the Tuckasegee River for Smallmouth Bass. Hookers Fly Shop is only outfitter that offers seven different sections to float on the Upper and Lower Tuckasegee River for smallmouth bass.
Anglers can choose to fly fish, use traditional spinning gear or both. These trips are available in 1/2 day, 3/4 day and full day increments. We provide all necessary gear (both fly and spin) on all of our trips as well as lunch on full days and drinks and snacks on 1/2 and 3/4 day trips. (lunch can be added on to any trip upon request for a minimal fee.) Our smallmouth fly fishing float trips are $250 per boat for half day trips, $300 per boat for a 3/4 day and $350 per boat for a full day trip. Check out the Trip Prices tab for all trip prices including our smallmouth wade trips on the Tuckasegee and Little Tennessee. We do have multiple boats available for larger groups. You can also choose to use traditional spin tackle.
Anglers will also have the opportunity to catch plenty of other species of fish on these trips. In addition to Smallmouth, Rainbow and Brown trout, Red Eye Bass, Largemouth, Spotted Bass, Walleye, and Perch are often brought to the net. There are even rumors that Muskie roam these waters.
