Come spend a day on the river with us in Western North Carolina!
Fall is Here
Fall has arrived with cooler temps and the leaves are preparing to peak in their spectacular colors while mountain trout are peaking in their own spectacular colors as well. Southern Appalachian Brook Trout are donning bright orange bellies, sides painted in red spots with blue halos and fins lined with black and white. Brown Trout are showing deep yellow bellies, their sides also painted in vivid red spots with some red spots on the top fins.
The Delayed Harvest streams will be stocked with good numbers of trout in October and November so the catch and release fishing for these friendly, cooperative fish should be excellent. Each county in Western North Carolina has at least one designated Delayed Harvest stream, Asheville being in the center of them all, so wherever you may be in WNC you are not too far from good trout fishing. Also, don’t forget about fly fishing for Smallmouth Bass with topwater or subsurface flies as they are getting quite aggressive fattening their bellies in preparation for the winter months. There is nothing like the tug of a Smallie on your Crawfish pattern or the explosive take of your topwater Frog pattern and the fight afterward can just plain wear a person out!
