Nantahala River North Carolina

Recent email to a dear fly fishing friend and Idaho Fly Fishers Association Member:

Dear Stretch,

As per our phone conversation this morning, one of my personal favorite trout streams is the Nantahala River in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains. This river was listed on my page entitled "Fly Fisherman's Bucket List". Simply enter the address "27395 Wayah Rd, Topton, NC" and it should take you directly to the river's edge. It appears to be approximately a 4 1/4 hours drive from where you are currently located. It is an absolutely gorgeous drive from Chattanooga east.

This is a 4 mile stretch of river off of the main river body coming down from Nantahala Lake. The river is only about 50 feet wide, but houses some HUGE trout. Make sure you go there between October 1 and July 1. Catch and release with single hook fishing only. Email and I will make fly suggestions again.

Accommodations are available in Murphy, NC and Bryson City, NC. Bryson City has a little more to offer and is another 30 minutes NE just off US Hwy 74. Lots to see and do. Make sure you stop by the restaurant at the Nantahala Outdoor Center; sit by the river and have lunch.

Have you yet paid your Big Horn deposit for the IDFFA fly fishing trip? Will contact Zoe soon and send out another email.


PS - Don't forget to get a NC fishing license.

Come and fly fish the great outdoor state of Idaho soon. The snow is melting.

Hard takes, tight lines and may all you fly fishing dreams come true this season.
