Fly Fishing for Rainbow Trout in  Cashiers, NC

The streams that run through the Cashiers valley are pure, cool, and teeming with rainbow trout. They are surrounded by some of the highest mountains east of the Mississippi River. 

Even though the nearby rivers and streams provide fantastic fly fishing, you risk spending days on the water without catching anything with the right instruction. You may become lost in the cast woods of the nearby mountains.

Our favorite places to fish around Cashiers are the Cullasaja and Tuckaseegee Rivers. From Highlands to Franklin, the Cullasaja travels. Its waters are a little more challenging and better suited for experienced fishermen. 

All skill levels should have great success with the Tuckaseegee, also known as the Tuck. You may catch several large, beautiful trout in both rivers, including brown, rainbow, and brook trout, all of which are maintained by hatcheries. All you need is a qualified fly fishing guide.
