An adventurous outing that take you on foot into headwater streams and spring creeks where both the trout and the scenery are spectacular.

Wild rainbow, brown and brook trout are the stars on the wild trout waters of the southern Appalachian Mountains in Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. And you can count on the experience of the guides of Reel Angling Adventures to lead you to one of the most rewarding fly-fishing experiences in the tri-state region, including the scenic remote trout waters of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Guided Trout Treks in the Western North Carolina Mountains

Guided Fly Fishing in the North Georgia Mountains

Wild rainbows and browns share many of the lower reaches of the region's wild-trout waters. The streams tumble through gorges with steep gradients where pocket water, drains, chutes and short riffles are the standard targets. The darker, slower pockets tend to hold brown trout, while aggressive rainbows hold fast in chutes and riffles. Nymph fishing takes more fish, but the standard fare of regionally important dry flies draw slashing strikes across the stream surfaces.

• Coopers Creek • Slickrock Creek • Snowbird Creek

and many, many more unnamed streams.....

Native brook trout occupy the most remote waters, upstream from cascading waterfalls that serve as barriers to the more aggressive rainbow and brown trout. The colorful brookies are a small trout by typical anglers' standards. But what they lack in size is made up in their spirit. Averaging about 5 inches long, native brook trout are pure hellions when hooked. Taking nymphs and dry flies with equal abandon, they'll drive strongly into drop pools and jump wildly from the riffles. Trophy native brookies range upward of 8 to 10 inches long.
