Ravens Fork River
The stream flow and height data is used as the same data as for the Ravens Fork and Oconoluftee River
The Ravens Fork River runs from the Straight Fork, in the Smoky Mountain Park, through the Cherokee Reservation and merges with the Oconoluftee River in the northern section of Cherokee.
From the beginning of the river, at the hatchery the river runs several miles into Cherokee.
The “Trophy Section” starts at the Blue Ridge Parkway and runs two and half miles upstream to just below the first camp grounds. You will see several pull offs along Big Cove Road which pretty much indicates the access to the common fishing areas. There are other areas for fishing the Trophy Section and it would take more than one trip to the river to understand the real lay of the land. As with all fishing on the Cherokee Reservation, a Cherokee Enterprise fishing license is required. In addition to the permit for the general waters, the Trophy Section requires an additional permit.
When the Reservation has stocked the Trophy Section adequately, it is a trip you will not forget. My personal best catches have come from the Ravens Fork.
The reservation stocks all the waters within the Reservation and can be productive……..though as you might expect there is a lot of fishing pressure on these waters that allow “catch and keep”.
If you would like to book a trip to fish the Ravens Fork, just give me a call and I will be glad to guide you on these tricky waters…..828.226.3833
