Tuckasegee Float Trips

Posted by on January 26, 2014

Guided fly fishing float trips on the Tuckasegee River.   While our specialty is fly fishing, we do offer spin trips for both trout and smallmouth on this river.  All fishing gear is provided on all of our trips including flies, leader, tippet and lures for spin fishing.

The Tuckasegee River offers some of the best fly fishing in the Southeast between early October and late May.  We offer 1/2, 3/4 and full day float trips on the Delayed Harvest section between Webster and Dillsboro.  The delayed harvest is catch and release single hook artificial between Oct. 1st and the first Saturday in June.  This section of river is stocked with close to 50,000 trout between Oct. and May.  The Tuck as most of the locals call it offers excellent dry fly, streamer and nymph fishing throughout the delayed harvest months and into the early summer.

We also fish the Little Tennesess River for smallmouth bass in the summer months. Smallmouth action is great as the temps rise, both water and air.  We offer more float options on both the Little Tennessee and Tuckasegee than any other outfitter or guide in the area.  Stop by email or call the shop if you are interested in learning more about how to gear up for this trip!
