    Bushwacking for Specs

    There is no shortage of remote mountain streams here in western NC and I finally got the opportunity to hit one up that I've had my eye on for some time. There is no direct access to get to this...

    That's a great article and well written, although I'd have to disagree with the term "death march".

    While I know most of us are here mainly because of the fishing, there is certainly a draw to...

    I've actually had the opposite experience, I haven't run across too many snakes or insects this year sat all (knocks on wood). That being said, I'm notorious for walking right by a snake and never...

    I haven't had much issues fishing, but I did have an encounter while trail running in Pisgah last year. I just so happened to stop and perch underneath a nest on a brutal climb and quickly got...

    If you're going to be close to Sylva, I'd just go to the Smokies. If you don't want to do that, though, there is lots of water up the mountains on the ridge that separates Sylva and...

    Oh wow, yeah kinda hard to recommend something for that large of an area to choose from. Like others have mentioned, grab a map and go up high. There's a lot more high elevation water on public land...

    It can be, but it's skinny water. There's parts that you can't fish because it's too tight and then it opens up enough where you can fish, although it's still tight. I'm not sure I'd go there just...

    Rather than a location to fish I think the best piece of advice I could give, especially in these conditions, is to make sure and fish with stealth as much as possible. Stay low, blend in, don't get...

    Oh OK I know which one now, the one I was thinking of was further upstream of the main creek. That one fishes good as well and there's a pretty sweet waterfall/cascades about four miles up the trail.

    OK now I know we're talking about the same stream! The last time I was up there the trail faded out about a mile or so up and was very overgrown. I'm not sure if it's just a path that has been beaten...

    Nice job sounds like a great day! There are some great watersheds on the NC side of the park, you'll have to make it a point to visit more.

    I was up in that area recently, the water levels are lower higher up but still fine on those tributaries. The further you hike in, the characteristic of the stream changes to predominantly plunge...

    I've caught brookies in Palmer as well and I've heard that they're in the main stem of Cataloochee, although not quite as plentiful. If you fish Palmer or Caldwell, you'll predominantly get rainbows,...

    Thanks y'all, I really enjoy Cataloochee and it always amazes me how it's never really packed, I guess the road getting up and over the ridge to get there keeps most people away.

    I've heard the same thing, although I don't know exact numbers. I would imagine they could get quite large in some of the lower elevation streams. Also, there are still some large brook trout around,...
