FLY FISHING NORTH CAROLINA



What make’s North Carolina such a good place to fly fish is the abundance of fish and the ability to fish year round. Most of the rivers in the east are filled with hatchery fish, which makes them plentiful. Since they are hatchery fish you will catch a lot of smaller fish to each big fish that you catch.

Here is why you want to fish in North Carolina, anglers say this is the best trout stream fishing east of the Mississippi. There are plenty of streams and rivers to choose from beyond what has been listed. You may even try your shot at fishing the tail waters below the dams that are used to produce electricity. The ever-changing environment near these dams brings about some excellent fishing. Word of advice, keep an eye on the water level and currents as they can change rapidly.
