Our favorite large river is the mighty Tuckasegee River. We offer Wade and Float Trips on the Tuckasegee River for Trout, Bass, Walleye, Muskie and Crappie. We pioneered fly fishing the lower 32 miles of the Tuckasegee River, and have many years more experience guiding anglers on the entire Tuckasegee than anyone.
The Ravens Fork near Cherokee is fly fishing nirvana for monster Trout! Catch Trophy sized Rainbow and Brook Trout exceeding 30 inches on the Fly Fishing Only Trophy Trout section. Fish caught here are measured in pounds not inches! Fly Fishing the Smokies guides were instrumental in helping to establish and promote the Trout Trout section. Our guides were there helping the first 7 stockings of the river, and assisted the Tribal Fish Hatchery with stream monitoring and health assessments. Our Lead Guide also founded the fly fishing tournament, The Rumble in the Rhododendron, which is one of the largest prize payouts in competitive Fly Fishing and held on the Ravens Fork each year.
