    this whole nantahala salmon thing may be some closely guarded secret, but according to this oct. 3rd 2006 press release, this man has established the NC state record for kokanee salmon at 9.2 ounces, 11.5 inches. the link also has a picture. I guess its still bigger than the average GSMNP trout.

    There is a link from possibly the early 90's out there which shows a 21" beauty taken from the upper Nan. If I can find it, I will post it.
    Are you specifically interested in Salmon or just the Lake Run fish, there are dependable runs of Lake Run fish (you may be well aware of this) out of Santeetlah lake and I am told Fontana, Chilhowee and Calderwood though I cannot speak to the Fontana fish first hand.
    Best,

    Hey TTAS67 forget about the Hardy, how about some flys that will make those Clinch fish go nuts. They'll see these things and just jump on the bank. THAT's THE TRUTH don't laugh.

    Man I have been hearing about them dang salmon since I moved here. *I was thinking like 20" plus fish running up the streams. *I must say I'm a little let down, however I guess it would be cool to catch a salmon in NC. *Anyone got any more pics?

    from what I understand there are 20"ers. the article is about the man establishing the record for salmon in NC. In other words, there was no record, so even a 2" fish would have set the record.
