Trout streams of North Carolina, West Trout streams of North Carolina, West
Fishing Big Snowbird Creek WATCH BIG SNOWBIRD CREEK This stream has it all - great scenery, wilderness adventure and some really big brook trout. It is my favorite trout stream of North Carolina.
Fishing the Cullasaja River, NC WATCH CULLASAJA RIVER The Cullasaja River has both stocked and wild brown, rainbow and brook trout. There is one main point of access in the middle section near a national forest campground.
Fishing Deep Creek WATCH DEEP CREEK An overview of fishing Deep Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina. Known for large brown trout and above average rainbows, Deep Creek can be accessed either from the parking area, hiking along the trail for a few miles, or reaching the remote upper section via an overnight back packing trip.
Fishing Deep Creek Tributaries WATCH DEEP CREEK TRIBUTARIES Indian Creek, Left Fork Deep Creek, Rocky Run and Sahle Creek are the 4 major fishing tributaries of Deep Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina. Wild brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout can all be found here.
Fishing Hazel Creek, GSMNP WATCH HAZEL CREEK This is an overview of fishing in Hazel Creek, along the North Carolina side of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. A separate video will discuss the many tributaries of Hazel. Most people who fish here take a shuttle over Fontana Lake and camp a few nights. Brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout may all be found here.
Fishing Tributaries of Hazel Creek WATCH HAZEL CREEK TRIBUTARIES This video discusses fishing the main tributaries of Hazel Creek in the North Carolina side of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The streams covered are: Sugar Fork, Bone Valley Creek, Walker Creek and Proctor Creek. Brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout are all available. Personally I found the tributaries more fun than the main Hazel Creek.
Fishing Nantahala River WATCH NANTAHALA RIVER Watch a 5 minute overview of fishing North Carolina's Nantahala River, taking you from the lower section, thru the gorge, the upper section and then into the headwaters.
Fishing East Fork Pigeon River, NC WATCH PIGEON RIVER, EAST FORK This is the East Fork Pigeon River located in Haywood County, North Carolina, in the Shining Rock Wilderness Area. The Big East Fork trailhead is the main access point. We hiked a couple miles in but some people go back packing to fish the further sections of stream. You can fly fish for rainbow trout, brown trout (some up to 20") and further upstream will be brook trout.
Fishing Little East Fork Pigeon River, NC WATCH PIGEON RIVER, LITTLE EAST FORK A day fly fishing on the Little East Fork Pigeon River in the national forests of North Carolina. It is a tributary of the West Fork Pigeon River in Haywood County. Brown trout and native brook trout are the main species, and as always the brook trout are easier to catch.
Fishing Middle Prong Pigeon River, NC WATCH PIGEON RIVER, MIDDLE PRONG A day spent fishing the Middle Prong Pigeon River in the national forests and Middle Prong Wilderness Area of North Carolina. While brown trout are present the main fish species is the brook trout. It is a tributary of the West Branch Pigeon River located in Haywood County.
Fishing West Fork Pigeon River, NC WATCH PIGEON RIVER, WEST FORK The West Fork Pigeon River in North Carolina's Pisgah National Forest is probably the best fishing stream in the Pigeon River watershed. Here I show the various sections available for fishing.
Fishing Dark Prong and Yelowstone Prong Pigeon River, NC WATCH PIGEON RIVER, DARK & YELLOWSTONE PRONGS The Dark and Yellowstone Prongs make up the headwaters of the North Carolina's Pigeon River. They offer fishing for native brook trout.
Fishing Santeetlah Creek, NC WATCH SANTEETLAH CREEK Santeetlah Creek in southwest North Carolina offers many miles of good trout fishing as it flows thru the Nantahala Game Lands. Rainbow trout and brown trout are the main catch, both hatchery supported and wild. It is easy to wade and a good stream for dry fly fishing. There are also a number of smaller tributaries in the area that offer smaller fishing opportunities: Cold Branch, John's Branch and Sand Creek are just a few.
Fishing Slickrock Creek, NC WATCH SLICKROCK CREEK Slickrock Creek is a trout stream along the North Carolina / Tennessee border. It holds wild brown trout and is a nice stream if you like hike-in wilderness fishing experiences. The trail is steep so don't try it unless you are in good condition.
Fishing Wolf Creek, NC WATCH WOLF CREEK Wolf Creek is a small trout stream in North Carolina. While it offers small rainbow trout the real attraction are the 3 large waterfalls. Who knows if there are other falls to be found. There is no real trail to get there and the terrain is often rugged, so no this is definitely not a tourist attraction. In fact climbing around on this stream can be dangerous. Be careful.
Fishing East Fork French Broad River WATCH EAST FORK FRENCH BROAD RIVER Fly fishing the East Fork French Broad River, North Carolina, in early June, the 2nd weekend of the Catch and Keep season. There are several miles of publicly accessible stream in the lower reaches. The stream is scenic, easy to wade, heavily stocked and at times heavily fished.
Float Fishing the French Broad River WATCH FLOAT FISHING FRENCH BROAD RIVER Floating and Flying Fishing the French Broad River near Brevard, western North Carolina in early June. We rented a canoe from Headwater Outfitters and fished several miles below the confluence of the North and East forks. This section has the best trout water. As you go further downstream it slows down, warms up and smallmouth bass become more common. It is believed to be the third oldest river in the world and offers both brown trout and rainbows.
Tenkara Fly Fishing Cataloochee, Rough & Palmer Creeks, Smoky Mountains WATCH CATALOOCHEE CREEK, GSMNP Cataloochee Creek and two of its tribuaries, Rough Fork and Palmer Creek, are featured here. Unfortunately the rain kept me from fishing and filming these quality streams more than what I was able to. They all hold primarily rainbow trout with brook trout and brown trout present.
Fishing Lost Cove Creek, North Carolina WATCH LOST COVE CREEK Considered as one of the most scenic streams in North Carolina, Lost Cove Creek offers good fishing for rainbow trout and some large browns. I didn't catch much of either when I fished it. There are steep trails of 0.8 and 3.5 miles leading to the lower and upper sections. It is a fly fishing only stream.
Fishing Noland Creek, Smokey Mountains WATCH NOLAND CREEK, GSMNP Here I hike 3 miles into the back country to fly fish some remote water on Noland Creek in the Smoky Mountains. This stream stays surprisingly cool during the typically hot summer months and I did manage to catch a few trout.
Fishing Oconaluftee River, Smokey Mountains WATCH OCONALUFTEE RIVER, GSMNP My first day fishing with my new Tenkara fly rod. This is on the Oconaluftee River in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, the NC side upstream of the popular Smokemont campground. Got a 10" brown and rainbow on a small BWO, missed a few others.
Fishing the Remove Raven Fork River, GSMNP WATCH RAVEN FORK RIVER While many people fish the heavily stocked lower portion of the Raven Fork River, few venture into its remote headwaters deep in the GSMNP. I took the steep 3 mile hike and besides the boulders, plunge pools and rough terrain, got a few of the native applachian brookies that reside there.
Fishing Socco Creek, Cherokee Qualla Reservation WATCH SOCCO CREEK The Cherokee Qualla Indian Reservation in North Carolina, adjacent to the Smokey Mountains, has about 30 miles of intensively stocked trout streams. This video shows the lower half of Socco Creek, one of the stocked streams. As you can see the trout here are larger than the average native trout for the area.
Fishing Linville Gorge, North Carolina WATCH LINVILLE GORGE The Linville River Gorge in North Carolina offers some scenic and adventurous fishing opportunities in a hard to reach setting. The brown trout are known to grow plenty big here but with so many deep pools to hide in and so much forage to feed on I had trouble catching many. The trails leading to the stream are steep and rough.

We're using twister tail jigs here and getting plenty of action. The water is darker than usual due to recent rains. Fishing pressure on these streams tends to be very light.
