    As far as I know there are no lure restrictions on most of the Linville.

    I believe that is correct. And if you're willing to get on down in there there's some BIG trout. Further in you go, the better it gets. Backpack campers can really have some beautiful trips with nobody around.

    They stock the entire gorge with fingerling brown trout

    There are also sunfish in there

    I have never fished there but this is from people who have

    We where by the gorge on opening day and couldn't figure out how to get down to it. What are some areas to acces the river?

    I use the babel tower or spences trail. just have to surf some sites and find the trail you think is best. it is a rough place, so go prepared. and yes, there are some large trout down there, but they will not be everywhere. you will probably find out it is better smallie water than a trout stream. my largest brown came from the gorge, we happen to hit a pod of about a dozen big browns one sweltering summer day, haven't had a day like that in the gorge since.
