Re: Western NC Fishing
I fished Deep Creek last Friday night for about 2 hours before getting rained out. I'm no Deep Creek expert, but I've always caught fish on the basics i.e. prince nymphs and pheasant tails, parachute adams and stimulators. The water was up and stained last week and I managed 3 small rainbows on a #10 prince down deep before the rain and lightning forced me home. Generally its good to hike up the Deep Creek trail about one mile to the confluence with Indian Creek. Below this point you are likely to see a lot of tubers, but no tubers are allowed above Indian creek. Although I have not fished Deep Creek a lot, it is a very nice place that I always enjoy. Hopefully the water will be a little better for you than it was for me.
