First time poster, please let me know if Im breaking any rules with this post!

My partner and I are going to Asheville this weekend. Shes a photographer and shooting a wedding Sunday afternoon which leaves me unsupervised and itching to catch a smallmouth bass (or maybe even a trout). Ill have the truck so driving up to an hour away is on the table. I will be sticking to spinning tackle (Ill have an ultra light/light/medium rods available to me. I will also bring my waders.

Im not asking for anyone's secret spot but I also dont want to just plop myself in the French Broad in the center of town as it will be filled with people (yuck) and I would like to avoid the crowds. I will truly be completely happy if I manage to catch a single smallmouth as it will be my first! Ive heard they fight hard and I know they look beautiful. Im open to hiking if needed.

Curious if you were able to wet a line and where did you go? I'm currently in Asheville and looking for spots on the French Broad.

Plenty of access right now from the shore. Not much rain so wading is easy. I kayak fish the FB all the time but only up towards Marshall Hwy.
