Imagine wading along miles of a pristine, private mountain river admist a bounty of fish. Our private sections of water span four different rivers and hold a breeding population of brown and brook trout as well as a regularly stocked and managed population of rainbows. The average size of our rainbow trout is 16 inches, though we've seen some in excess of 30 inches, with our guests regularly landing rainbows weighing 5+ pounds. Our wild brown trout often exceed 20 inches, and our wild brook trout average 12 inches.
For our guided trips, we:
*Our helicopter service is available for fly fishing clients. This service puts a relaxing fishing trip within range of most southeastern cities.
• Your guide will meet you at a pre-determined location and will be as hands-on as you please. Whether helping you with casting skills, pointing out likely spots, or simply joining for a relaxing day on the river, our guides will work with you to develop the perfect trip.
• Your equipment is provided if you don't have your own. Your guide can provide brief instruction if you're a bit rusty or new to the sport. If you're vacationing in the area or simply wishing to try out fly fishing, don't worry—we'll provide everything you need to enjoy your time on the water!
• The river is best accessed by wading, as the majority of the water is shallow and slow moving. We have access points prepared to make it easier to get into the river, and your guide will assist you to safely navigate these features.
• A catered lunch is automatically included in the full day trip. We have tables set up riverside where you can relax and enjoy fresh food while telling some fish tales. This time is special and often builds lasting friendships. Lunch is included for half day trips unless opted out.
The sections of the river we fish are open year round. We do have a 100% catch and release policy on all trout species. Our sections are single hook artificial lures only.
Fly fishing packages are available for large or corporate groups and lodging can be included. Please give us as much time as possible to schedule groups.
*Many clients later opt for an annual fishing membership to access our rivers. Please inquire if year-round trout fishing is of interest to you.
