Way up in there you might find one or two but it is mainly a rainbow stream. I haven't fished it since the late nineties. You like both the south and north fork if you like small streams. Good Luck

I took my dog up there last summer. We didn't do any fishing, just hiking around. We turned over some rocks and found some pretty big stonefly nymphs. We also found a copperhead and saw a bear.

That water looks great for small stream fishing but I think Hans is correct that it will mostly be rainbows.

Good luck!!!

I have fished the Citico a couple of times in the past few years. It's a nice little stream. I have caught only rainbows. It is a stocked stream with some wild fish in the upper reaches. I have seen more snakes in the Citico and Bald River stream systems than I have seen in any other areas of Tennessee or North Carolina, and I have fished most of the major stream systems. Have fun, but keep a close eye out for snakes.

I like Citico. It is one of the first places I cut my teeth trout fishing and have spent many camping trips back there over the years.

One thing to keep in mind, while the upper branches of Citico contain wild trout they also contain hardcore woodsmen. Come the start of hunting season when the leaves start to change you better watch yourself and wear something bright so you don't wind up with a bullet hole or an arrow firmly planted in you.

They set up hunting camps and hunt it hard up there.

Gonna haft to agree with these guys about the snakes.. Know two people who were bitten by copperheads fishing up there.. Know of several other close calls.. Have also seen 5' rattlesnakes in that area.. So if ya head up that way just keep an extra close watch for them...
