In Burnsville we will be wading some of the cleanest water as well as some of the coldest water in the Southeast. Be ready to cast dry flies, nymphs, and many other patterns for wild trout, rainbow trout, brook trout as well as trophy brown trout.
All of our waded trout fishing trips in Burnsville, NC are equipped with a 4 or 5 wt. fly rod setup and exceptional gear to help our clients be the most productive on their fishing excursion. While Burnsville Anglers fishes year-round, the best time of years to wade the rivers for trout are late February through late November.
Come when the leaves change! The leaves typically change in Burnsville during the last week in October. During this week the fishing is incredible with warmer weather still being present. We fish a variety of different streams, creeks, and rivers - if you have a preference for wild trout over other species of trout please let your guide know and we will accommodate your request.
