Western NC Fly Fishing Guides Fishing Report

My intentions are better than my execution.  I can hardly find time after getting off the river to get ready for the next days fishing, so I don't keep this page up very well.  For the best report, send me an e mail thomashopkins@earthlink.net or click on the links in blue below.


Tuckaseegee River Fishing Report: October 1- first Saturday in June. Before 

​  the Delayed Harvest season closed the fishing was incredible. From the

  ledges to Dillsboro the fishing was fantastic.  Not that they would take 

  anything, their palate was very eclectic. Can' wait until October 1. If you

  are planning a trip in the fall to fish the Delayed Harvest on the Tuck, 

  you should book your tip now: 828342.6480 or e mail me at:

Lower Tuckaseegee River report: In the Hatchery Supported section of the Tuck,

  (from the base of the old Dillsboro Dam to Fontana)  The Smallmouth etc fishing 

  has been very good.  Wade trips and float trips alike.


Pigeon River, West Fork Fishing Report: This most picturesque stream of Western

  North Carolina gave us incredible results during the Delayed Harvest season.  The fishing

  after the DH season is a bit spotty.  From just above Middle Prong to the DH upper parking

  area there are always the ones that "got away".  The Middle Prong, by the way is an awesome

  stream to spend a day on.  You will alway find fish from above the open area where the campers

  go to as far as you care to hike.  The further, the better.  It is wild trout territory and the rewards

  in scenery and fish will give you life long memories.  One of my favorite days off.
