For some of the best North Carolina Trout Fishing near Asheville, head over to the Davidson River, a large river that is a tributary of the French Broad River. Flowing through beautiful regions of the Pisgah National Forest North Carolina, the Davidson River is divided into three sections; each has its own rules and regulations. The Lower Davidson River flows near the national forest boundary all the way to Avery’s Creek and is classified as a hatchery supported water, meaning this portion of the river is open year around except during the month of March, and it is stocked regularly. The middle portion of the Davidson River flows from Avery’s Creek to Looking Glass Creek and is a catch and release only area, and you must only use artificial fly lures! State and federal game officials strictly enforce these rules. The upper portion of the Davidson River is definitely the best portion of the river to enjoy for North Carolina Trout Fishing. It flows from Looking Glass Creek to the NC State Fish Hatchery and Pisgah Wildlife Center and is the section of the river that is famous for its large size catches!

In addition to the great Fly Fishing North Carolina on the Davidson, other rivers like the French Broad and the North Mills River are perfect for Fishing Western North Carolina. The French Broad has over 40 miles of world class smallmouth bass fishing, making it a top destination for those looking to enjoy Bass Fishing in North Carolina. Plan an NC Camping and Fishing trip during the summer months and enjoy Whitewater Rafting in Asheville on the French Broad and Fishing Western North Carolina as well. The North Mills River is a highly popular Fly Fishing North Carolina river that flows through Henderson County NC just a few minutes away from our Campgrounds in NC. A seasonal river, the North Mills River is best for Fly Fishing North Carolina during catch and release time which lasts from October 1st to the first Saturday in June. During this season, the wildlife officials stock the river monthly, and on average anglers catch fish between 10 and 16 inches long!

In addition to the secluded Fly Fishing North Carolina in the Pisgah National Forest and near the NC Blue Ridge Parkway, the DuPont State Forest is also home to rivers that create some of the area’s famous Western North Carolina Waterfalls and also offer some perfect Fly Fishing North Carolina spots.
