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!

What anglers said about Fly Fishing in North Carolina

Take a dramamine the night before the trip if you think you even might get sea sick! Once the boat stops and you're still rocking and rolling in the waves it hits you hard! But definitely take the trip! It was so much fun for the one that wasn't sea sick :)

CB is a great little beach town. Bracketed by Wilmington and Southport - it's a good place to stay, eat, fish & beach.. or drive 30 mins and explore some of the other local areas. Several very nice golf courses nearby too

I’m not an experienced fisherman by any means so my best recommendation is hire a professional to take you where the fish are! You can’t go wrong with Captain Randy & 1st Mate Nick with Fish Whistle fishing charter!

Contact the Captain you are booked with and get as much info as you can from him. Capt. Vinny knew what was coming with a late weather forecast change, and let us know the night before our trip what we were to expect. So we made a change of plans and set out on schedule to a different destination. May weather in North Carolina is somewhat unpredictable and changes fast. So keep in touch up to departure and they will put you on the fish!

Start with a shorter trip with an experienced captain (such as Captain Randy). These guys know the sound so well, you’re almost guaranteed to have a great time.

Be prepared for weather to change on you but May is great for Mahi and may still find some Wahoo around. If you are wanting to target Blue Marlin this is a good place to do so.

I would recommend waiting a little later in the year for the water temps to warm up a bit.

When you are researching a boat to fish with, contact the Captain and get their opinion when it would be best to go fishing for what you want to catch. I talked often with my Captain so we could plan for a great trip on the water.

If a storm comes in and changes everything might want to reschedule because the water is too rough.
