Fly fishing is very popular for catching musky in WNC. Throwing big baits or tossing long 4 to 10 inch flies is not uncommon to be seen on the French Broad River. Flies produce an erratic action that musky just cannot refuse. Musky fishing in Western North Carolina's mountains is great year round. Fall and winter is the best time to chase these monsters but summer is full of trophy fish as well. Be prepared to fish hard to land one of these river predators - they don't call them the fish of 10,000 casts for nothing!
