Looking for some very general info on WNC fly fishing. Not looking for anyone's "honey hole", just some info on area streams in the Pisgah NF.

Anyone?

I live in TN and go maybe a couple of times a year. I mostly fish GSMNP, but like trying other areas, blue lines are my favorite.

Know much about N. Mills River?

Not too much. Anytime we're in that region we always stay around 276 or west of that. TONS of little streams around there though.

You nailed it. TONS of streams is right.

Wilson Creek is a nice little stream.

Yes it is, from what I have been told.

I was looking for something in or near Pisgah, Wilson is up closer to Boone and I'm looking for something a bit closer to Asheville.

Thanks though!

If you really want to get technical Wilson Creek is in Pisgah Pisgah is huge at several million acres.

Depending how far you want to go Davidson River near Brevard looked pretty good to me.

I'm used to trout fishing out West in Montana and Colorado. It seems you can never really get away from the people traffic here on the East coast. However, they do stock the streams and the fish bite the same as they do out West.

Oh, I know. I meant the Pisgah district near Brevard. Pisgah is like the Cherokee NF in TN, there's the north and south.

I have fished the Davidson, it was okay. It receives a LOT of pressure, but it is a very good stream. Since a lot of it runs beside 276, access is pretty easy. That's why I was looking at the N. Mills, parts of it are off the beaten path. I have also fished the S. Mills, which is a very nice stream as well. Caught my first Grand Slam there!
