wonderful part of the "Upper"*Nantahala are the waters above the
power plant.....all year long, not just the Delayed Harvest times
Oct-May. This river is surrounded by breathtaking beauty, including a
250 ft water falls. The fish tend to be a bit smaller the further
upstream you go, but the whole experience is really big!
*Not to be confused with the Upper Nantahala River that originates above Standing Indian Park to Lake Nantahala.
By the way the river from below the Lake Nantahala along Old River Road to Wayah Road, is a fun place to fish. It is Hatchery Supported and can be fished from April 1 through the last day in February.
