I would Google the locally shop over there and call tomorrow mid day and ask one of them. I believe it is 1 feather fly shop. By the looks of the past few days weather I would definitely plan on high water.

Two links for you. This is the USGS site for streamflows. Scroll down to Swain County and you'll see that all rivers, the Luftee included, are running almost 4 times their normal flow. The potential for more rain is in the forecast. I'd have a "Plan B" ready to go.

The other is a local fly shop in Cherokee. Give them a call.
