Bryson City is located about an hour west of Asheville, NC. It has the Nantahala National Forest at it's front door and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at it's back. These two national treasures, along with state waters, puts Bryson City near thousands of miles of rivers, creeks, and streams to fish. With Fontana Lake also located close by, you have a very diverse fish population that consists of:
Brown Trout Smallmouth Bass Muskie Channel Catfish
Rainbow Trout Largemouth Bass Crappie Carp
Brook Trout White Bass Bluegill
Palomino Trout Kentucky Spotted Bass Yellow Perch
Steelhead Walleye Flathead Catfish
With a community that welcomes visitors with open arms, Bryson City exudes small town mountain charm. Whether you are looking for a cool mountain stream to enjoy, a hike on a trail, or just relax and enjoy a meal downtown- Bryson City has it all.
We at Tuckaseegee Fly Shop are proud to call this community our home, and look forward to seeing you, whether in our shop, out on the water, or just walking around town, we welcome you.
