Franklin is also home to the headwaters of the Nantahala River in the area known as Standing Indian. Standing Indian and the Nantahala River is special place to fly fish and camp! The Nantahala River here is really not a river at all but a medium sized creek flowing gently through the high mountains. You’ll find a wide variety of wild Rainbow, Brown and Brook trout swimming the waters here. Standing Indian offers fun and enjoyment for the whole family, plus has all the features that test even the most experienced anglers.
