  1. Freshwater Fishing
    Hey all, I am headed to the Asheville area for the holiday and was thinking of bring a rod with hopes to catch what ever would bite. Read some other threads and have seen I'm probably going to want to float if possible but also that you would ideally like it to be <800 cfs. I have access to a...

    I'm going to Asheville w/ my wife so she can attend some conference at the Grove Park. I'll have about five hours tomorrow afternoon july 7 (12:30p-5:30p) and 7a-12p Friday and Saturday mornings.

  3. Freshwater Fishing
    Anyone have opinions about the accuracy of fish weight calculators that you find online? I caught my personal best flathead catfish a week ago, and according to the couple of length to weight converters I tried, it weighs between 4 and 6 pounds.

  7. Freshwater Fishing
    I am very new at river fishing. This fish was caught on the French Broad just south of Asheville. I was trying to catch smallmouth (without much luck) and caught several rock bass and this guy. Any help...
  8. Fly-Fishing
    I have plenty of time to fish this Summer and wanted to try fishing for smallmouth bass from a whitewater canoe on the French Broad river. Are there easy sections (meanning I&II) of that river that are productive for smallmouth? If so, where are the put ins and take outs for those sections...
