Asheville, North Carolina is the epicenter of Southeastern Fly Fishing. The diversity of the Trout Fishing options we have is unrivaled in the East.
Our North Carolina Wade Trips include everything from small stream, hike-in brook trout fishing to more open mid-sized freestone Trout streams. These rivers include, but are not limited to the Davidson River, Green River, Pigeon River Drainage, Laurel River, North Mills River, and the Ravens Fork of the Oconoluftee.
Our Trout Float Trips take place on big wide open tailwater rivers that provide ample room to cast and opportunities at larger trout. These rivers include the Tuckaseegee River in North Carolina and the Watauga River and South Holston River in Tennessee. The Tuckaseegee River is the most heavily stocked river in North Carolina and the Watauga and South Holston have the best hatches in the South East.
Asheville also has a ton of Smallmouth Bass in the French Broad River, the Pigeon River, the Nolichucky and the Toe River. All of this is within one hour of Asheville, the Paris of the South.
