The trout streams in the Blue Ridge
, & Great Smoky mountains
of North Carolina
from Cherokee to Asheville to Boone host the best fishing streams there are in North Carolina.
Some of our neighboring states contain great fly fishing trout waters also. With such close access to Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Georgia the fishing possibilities seem endless. In most of these trout streams and rivers you can catch all three types of trout; like brook trout, rainbow trout, and brown trout. The wild fish tend to be smaller in NC, more so than the stocked ones, but it takes more stealth to catch the wild trout when fly fishing. The stocked trout are easy to catch at first, but harder as the season progresses. Over all fly fishing in the North Carolina mountains is an exceptional trout fishing haven with over 3,000 miles of trout streams open to fishing through out Western NC. All these streams are enjoyed by many beginners and old timers a like. One thing is for sure though once the fly fishing bug grabs you it will make you think about Fly Fishing All The Time.
