Blue Lining Trips

For A Perfect Day Of Trout Fishing

Brook Trout Blue lining Trips

The Southern Appalachian Brook Trout is the only trout native to western North Carolina. These trout thrive in high altitude creeks where the water is free of pollution and rich in oxygen. The average length of these fish is only 6 to 8 inches, but what they lack in size, they make up for in raw beauty. If you are willing to hike a good ways into the backcountry of Pisgah National Forest then you will be rewarded by catching North America's most beautiful trout. McDowell County has a few creeks that hold these native fish, and we know exactly where you can find them. We offer half and full day trips. 

Half Day for 2 anglers (4 hours): $150

Full Day for 2 anglers (8 hours): $250

Rainbow Trout Blue lining Trips

McDowell County is home to an abundant amount of wild rainbow trout in its high altitude creeks where the water rarely exceeds 70 degrees. These fish are eager to take dry flies from the surface, or drifting nymphs through swift riffles. If you are more interested in quantity opposed to size, then this trip is for you. Catching numerous fish away from the crowds makes for an unforgettable trip in the mountains of western North Carolina. We offer half and full day trips. 

Half Day for 2 anglers (4 hours): $150

Full Day for 2 anglers (8 hours): $250
