A full day wade trip is a great way to experience the streams and rivers of the Great Smoky Mountains and Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail.  With a typical day lasting about 6-8 hours, it gives plenty of time for learning the necessary skills to land a fish and make a lasting memory.  Give us a call to begin your journey on the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail in the beautiful Smoky Mountains.

GUIDED FLY FISHING FLOAT TRIP

At times, wading can present limits to angler access and coverage of pristine trout and smallmouth fly fishing. Floating the Tuckaseegee River, Little Tennessee river, and Nantahala River Tail Race bring the angler in contact with world-class fly fishing for trophy trout and small mouth bass.  With the typical float trip lasting 6-8 hours (full day) or 4 hours (half day), it is a great way to see and fish miles of a river in one trip.  Contact us for availability.

HAZEL CREEK GUIDED FULL DAY
FLY FISHING  TRIP
 
- 1 ANGLER   $350
- 2 ANGLERS $425
- 3 ANGLERS $500
 

Hazel Creek is one of the most unique areas in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Its beauty rivals anything in Western North Carolina, and its remoteness can rarely be found.  You will travel by boat across Fontana Lake to the mouth of Hazel Creek, and with a short hike you will be wetting a line in one of the most productive wild trout streams in all of the southeast. These waters are hallowed by the locals who grew up fishing these waters, and still produce wild trout in the 20"plus range.  If you have never fished or evened hiked this area, it is a must, and should be on all anglers bucket list. These trips are very limited and book up fast, so a reservation is required. Contact us for availability.

 

Fishing license and gratuities are not included.
