Walleyes, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Whitefish, Catfish, Pike, and Bluegills, all of these can be found in abundance in the lakes, creeks, rivers, streams and ponds that grace the Blue Ridge, Appalachian and Smoky Mountain landscape.

The freshwater streams that course through these ancient mountains have one fish that reigns supreme; the Trout. In fact, North Carolina’s mountain trout streams are considered by knowledgeable anglers to be the finest in the eastern United States.

There’s no better time to tie into a rainbow, brook or brown trout than May and June, these are prime Trout months. In the winter, when the water is cold, the fish are obviously less active. In May and June the water temperature gets to around 50 to 55 degrees, which makes the fish more active and plentiful. The warmer weather triggers insect life on the surface of the water, and that of course stimulates the fish to bite.
