Summertime, and the livin’ is easy, FISH ARE JUMPIN’ and the cotton is high… The immortal lyrics of Gershwin live on in the Southern Appalachian mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Rhododendron are in full bloom in the higher altitudes along with the Mountain Laurel, Flame Azalea and a host of other amazingly colorful flora and fauna. With steady late afternoon rains the rivers and creeks are full, clear and cold and hosting some mighty cooperative trout. We are coming to the end of the Eastern Green Drake Mayfly hatch and in the midst of Yellow Drakes, Slate Drakes, Little Yellow Sallies, Light Cahills and Giant Golden Stoneflies not to mention an abundance of terrestrial activity as well in ants, beetles, crickets and hoppers.
A walk and wade trip on the higher altitude wild trout waters in the Pisgah National Forest along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains is a great way to spend a summer day while staying nice and cool wet wading in the streams. Other summertime options include fly fishing for Trout on the premier waters of the Davidson River, the South Holston River, the Watauga River and Cherokee Trophy water as well as throwing some large flies at Smallmouth Bass in the French Broad River and a number of other nearby Smallie rivers. We would love to help keep you cool this summer by getting you on the water with a guided fly fishing trip, whether it be a wade trip, float trip or backcountry experience. To book a guided fly fishing trip with one of our talented, expert fly fishing guides give us a call at 828.645.8700 or check out our Guide Service page. We look forward to sharing the great fly fishing waters of Western North Carolina with you soon!
