The Nantahala River, one of Trout Unlimited’s Top 100 Rivers fishes at its best in the Spring. The Nantahala has two distinct sections, the upper section is a Delayed Harvest regulated section which is stocked to the brim with Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout. This section also is home to a good number of wild Rainbow and Brown trout. Plenty of clean flowing cool water plus tons of aquatic vegetation and insects provide the trout plenty of food sources and keeps you in action all Spring and Summer.
