Why You Should Fish for Rainbow Trout in Cashiers, NC

There are few places in the world as beautiful as Cashiers, NC. You will fall in love with the splendor and majesty of the area. Within just a short distance of the town, you can hike hundreds of miles of trails, float or paddle down rivers and creeks, enjoy a zipline canopy tour, or eat at one of the excellent restaurants. 

When it comes to rainbow trout, with the right guide, you can find plenty of wild and hatchery-supported fish in the waters of the Cullasaja and Tuckasegee Rivers. As with other trout, rainbows inhabit streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes with good water quality and temperatures that rarely exceed 70-degrees. Cashiers is one of the highest towns on the East Coast, so the waters in this area are perfect for hatchery-supported and wild rainbow trout.
