Go in the fall! The lakes SAA offer guide trips on have amazing fall foliage views. Bring a camera as well - we saw 2 bald eagles on Lake Fontana! - Langston Brown
Well experienced guides. Our guide Paul put us on fish in a heart beat. Great fun on Lake Watauga and we even spent the afternoon wading the river, which was really nice. - Chris Hughes
If this is any indication, Nate has been asking to go fishing every day since we left. - Rob SpeirFishing is becoming a great way for us to come together as a family and appreciate the beauty of our waters and mountain venues in North Carolina. It was a thrill to fish for wild trout and understand their habitat. Nothing beats hands on and this was a great hands on experience. You both met and exceeded our expectations. - The BohlensI went on a full day guided bass fishing trip on Lake Jocassee a couple weeks ago. Got to catch large and smallmouth bass on the lake, which happens to be one of the most beautiful lakes I've ever been to. Then my guide Paul took me up to the mouth of the Toxaway river for lunch and a little fly fishing for Rainbows and Browns. I just can't recommend Southern Appalachian Anglers enough! - Robert McKinley
