Native Trout Fly Fishing Trips Asheville NC
SAA’s most commonly requested trip is fly fishing for native trout. These types of fish can be hiding in any backwoods creek or stream. With the native trouts beautiful colors they are a blast to catch! Our guides are highly experienced with the mountains, streams and lakes surrounding Asheville, so finding streams that produce these native species can be found quite easily.
These types of trips include hiking and sometimes even backpacking through Ashevill’s ‘backyard’. Many times we hike with our gear through some of the high country’s beautiful forests and find our way to the small creek and most times we are accompanied with a natural waterfall. The native trout around Asheville must have cold water with a lot of oxygen running through it to be found.
Flies and Gear
After booking your fly fishing trip with SAA, let us do the rest. SAA comes outfitted with all the gear necessary for a successful fishing trip. We provide waders, wading boots, high quality fly rods, flies, line and leader and everything else including food, drinks and snacks! When booking a wild trout fly fishing trip we will most likely be using dry flies and or small midges. Bright colors usually work best for the native trout. Most areas where native trout are likely found will have low hanging branches, and small casting spaces – where a small hole can sometimes produce up to 20 wild trout at a time. Small leaders will be used for these tight to cast spaces. Short leaders are also easier to land the fish.
Many times the bigger brook trout will stay on the bottom of the pool so small nymphs are also very effective when trying to get the big ones to bite!
