Fly Fishing in Cherokee North Carolina is a special treat for any visiting angler. The Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians have long been known for their trout fishing skills, and their great love and respect for nature and the outdoors. As such the Cherokee stock the Oconoluftee River, Raven Fork River, and Soco Creek, all total 30 miles of water, with more trout than any other stream in the US. That’s over 300,000 trout per year in only 30 miles of water! Talk about success rate!
The rivers and creeks here flow from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park through the town of Cherokee on to the mighty Tuckasegee River just above Bryson City and empty into Fontana Lake. The clean, cold water has a pure emerald green color that reminds you of rivers from far away lands such as New Zeland, and Chillie.
Cherokee boats one of the best fly fishing only sections of river in the country. Aptly named the Cherokee Fly Fishing Only Trophy Section, this 2.2 mile section is chocked full of trout just waiting for the right fly and presentation. A fish caught here can surely be the fish of a lifetime!
Fly Fishing in Cherokee you can expect to catch Rainbow, Brook, and Brown Trout, Palomino Trout, Steelhead, and the massive Donaldson Strain Rainbow Trout, the hardest fighting trout in the world!
