Back Country Guided Fishing Trips

Take your guided fishing trip off the grid! All of our one-of-a-kind back country fishing trips start out on our outfitted fishing boat, driving to the river loaded down with gear. As we approach the river we beach the boat, and begin to wade up one of our pristine, cold-water rivers where some of the largest and most wild trout and smallmouth have been caught. A unique fishing trip that isn't offered anywhere else in Western North Carolina.
