Fly Fishing in North Carolina

There are few places in the world with fishing as diverse as the “Tar Heel State.” With hundreds of miles of prized Trout streams, numerous productive lakes, and access to sounds, bays, and deep offshore waters, it’s an angler’s paradise. If you’re looking for something a little different, however, follow a North Carolina fly fishing guide and test your skills.
 
Freshwater fly fishing in NC is world class. The Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail is the only of its kind in the world, and takes you to some of the best Trout waters on the planet. Brown, Rainbow, Brook, and the elusive Palomino Trout are all available.
 
Move towards the lakes, and there’s the chance of a Bass. Largemouth, Smallmouth, and White varieties make up the Black Bass trio, with Walleye and Muskies just adding to the fun.
 
When it comes to saltwater fly action, you couldn’t ask for better. Striped Bass in the brackish rivers give way to oversized Redfish and Spotted Seatrout in the bays and sounds. When the season hits in late spring, it’s all about Cobia who come surprisingly close to shore, while Tarpon take center stage in summer.
 
With so many hunting grounds to explore, your trip will depend on where you want to go. Head to the remote streams inland and you’ll want to spend a full day exploring nature. Meanwhile, following a North Carolina fishing guide in saltwater can see you spend anywhere from a few hours to a full day on the water. Just make sure to check whether you need to bring your own gear!

Be prepared to be flexible with what you’re fishing for. No one was catching the larger fish anywhere on the morning we were out. But we caught a great haul of Spanish mackerel.

Be open, let the captain choose what and where to fish. If you have a specific request- address it at time of booking, not boarding.

It was a little chilly at first, but definitely worth going first thing in the morning to see the sunrise. It was beautiful.

Understand the weather forecast for your time on the water so you can be prepared. If you’re chartering a boat, plenty of good ones out there but remember they are not miracle workers. Just like anything else there are good days and not so good days when it comes to “catching” fish.

Take the 3/4 day trip if you can. Cost extra but we thought it was worth the trip to go further out.

Anyone with experience can land just about every catch if used to fishing from a boat. 2/3 people in my party have never fished before and still caught huge baddies.

We were just a little early in the season to really have a good shot at getting many more fish besides the spotted sea trout and the bulefish. But it was still a great trip.

Things just getting started in April, and if you are fortunate enough to catch days in the upper 60's and low 70's, I'm sure you'll find a much more aggressive bite!
