re: Bryson City/Smokies/Nantahala fishing - uncletrout
I would not suggest the NOC as a destination for wading/swimming. Serious current most of the day, can be a little hectic, and Class 5 rapids a little ways downstream.

re: Bryson City/Smokies/Nantahala fishing - uncletrout
+1 on fishing Cherokee. Easy roadside access and kid-friendly wading on the reservation. Another option: Delayed Harvest section of Upper Nantahala (above the power station where the rafts put in). Easy access/wading, and it was last stocked on July 23. Lower Nanty between NOC and the power ...

re: Anyone ever trout fished around Ashville, NC? - uncletrout
Would suggest the Davidson River drainage southwest of Asheville. Several small streams drain off of the southern flank of the Blue Ridge Parkway and come together as the Davidson, so you have anything from small water near the Parkway to pretty-big-but-wadeable downstream. Head towards Brevard ...

re: Anyone ever trout fished around Ashville, NC? - uncletrout
Plenty of options. Couple of factors to consider first: - When will you be here? - How mobile will you be, and how far from Asheville are you willing to go? - What kind of fishing is your preference (fly, hardware, or bait)? - Wild fish versus stocked? - Prefer small streams or big water? ...
