Spring Fly Fishing
Spring fly fishing will be here before you know it! Unofficially Spring starts here in the Great Smoky Mountains around March 1st. With the coming of Spring brings some amazing opportunities for fly fishing not only the Smoky Mountains, but across the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina region.
Hands down the best Spring time fishing in the region. The Tuckasegee River holds the most trout per mile of any stream in the US.

Wide open room for fly casting and literally thousands of trout waiting to eat your flies. 2023 Spring stocking dates are March 6rd, April 10th, and May 2nd. Plan your trips accordingly, this is the equivalent of Disney World of fly fishing! Trout here range from 12- 25 inches. The Tuckasegee River also has a good population of Smallmouth Bass and a Spring run of Walleye. We offer both Wade Trips and Float Trips on the Tuckasegee River.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Fly Fishing action inside the Great Smoky Mountains really heats up fast in the Spring. Trout start becoming active inside the park starting in March and activity increases rapidly each month into the summer. By late April to early May the Smokies trout feed heavily and dry fly fishing becomes the best choice! Streams such as the famed Hazel Creek and Forney Creek in North Carolina are long time favorites of experienced wild trout anglers. Deep Creek and the Oconaluftee River near Bryson City and Cherokee are some of the hottest choices for NC. In Tennessee near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge our favorites include the Little River, Middle Prong and West Prong. The most beautiful wild trout in the country live inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With over half a million acres and 2910 miles of water inside the park, there is no shortage of spectacular Streams to catch wild trout.
