October Fly Fishing

October Fly Fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains region should be on your list of things to do! Imagine yourself standing in a stream casting to rising trout in scenery that bursts with color and unmatched vibrance. October is one of the top months to fly fish in the region for trout!

October Fly Fishing in the Smokies has several options. We have the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for wild trout. The Smoky Mountains have 2910 miles of streams full of wild Rainbow, Brown, and Brook trout. That’s a lot of water in a national park that is just over 550,000 acres. These are the prettiest fish and streams in the region. Not much compares to the solitude and scenery of the Smokies.

Along with wild trout in the Smokies, we have the Cherokee Tropy Trout section. This is a fly fishing only section of the Raven Fork that is world renowned for its massive Rainbows and Browns. Many anglers fishing with us here catch the trout of a lifetime! These beasts offer a challenge for anglers and will fight as hard as any trout in the country.

The most prolific fishery in the region is the Tuckasegee River! The Tuckasegee is located just off the park boundary and flows through the mountain hamlet of Bryson City. The “Tuck” as most people call it has 11,000 trout per mile in October, by November it boasts 17,000 trout per mile. Fish here average 16-18 inches and fight very hard. Our clients catch many fish going well over 20 inches and weighing several pounds! The Tuckasegee River is stocked by the NC Wildlife and is home to Rainbow, Brown, and Brook trout. We offer both Wade Trips and Drift Boat Fishing on the Tuckasegee River.

October is THE time to Fly Fish the Smoky Mountains!
