On the river with us in Western North Carolina!

Our story

Curtis Wright Outfitters

From the thousands of miles of local trout and smallmouth bass rivers, to majestic Birds of Prey soaring in the big beautiful blue skies over top of them, Curtis Wright Outfitters can help you get outside and enjoy the best of Western North Carolina!.

Come spend some time with us Knee Deep, or Floating down a river, learning some of the finer points of fly fishing for our local finned friends. Luckily, most of our fish are typically found in some of the most beautiful settings possible. Western North Carolina boasts 3 species of trout both wild and stocked by the state of North Carolina and can offer fishing opportunities to anglers with all skill levels from beginner to a seasoned Pro.

Partner up your fly fishing trip with one of our Falconry Excursions, or possibly plan a trip around Falconry alone! Spend some up close and personal time with a few of the most majestic members of the animal kingdom.
