I will be moving soon just south of Charoltte right over the border in South Carolina. What species of fish would I be fishing for. I like fishing small streams and rivers. I am open for anything. The only trout experience I have is that I fished once for steelhead up north and did land fish. I fish hear in Cincinnati for moslty smallmouth and hybrid stripers. Any help would be great. Also anyone would be willing to help me out with the trout fishing that would be great, I would have no idea what I was doing. Ronnie

Lake Wylie and the Catawba river chain will be your home turf. Sounds like you'll be around Rock Hill SC. Nice Cats, Crappie, Bass, good Southern fishing year round!
Google those names and you'll see it is a nice layout. Never fished it but I hear alot about it.

Welcome to the site. LMB, crappie, catfish, and striper will be your fish of choice in that area. Only trout fishing in that area will be maybe from a trout pond. If you head up to the blue ridge mountain chain then you can get on the trout. I dont trout fish but maybe once every couple years so I want be any help in that area. Welcome to the south and I hope the fishing is always good in your new home waters.

Welcome to NC. We have some great trout fishing up in th mountains and foothills. I highly recommend getting a guide to show you around if at all possible - it will really cut the learning curve down immensely.

Hey

I live in North Charlotte, but I have fished catawba and a little of lake wylie. However, I didn't flyfish these. I have flyfished Mountain Island lake and Lake Norman which are in North Charlotte/corneilus area. If you are looking to flyfish for trout, the place i go to is South Mountain state park. I went up there last week and it was a little dead. However, I have caught some good sized browns and even a few wild brookies. You can look it up on google. Its about and hour and a half from N charlotte, that may add to a long trip from rockhill though. I would suggest buying some trout stream maps or talking to some guides. Hope this helps.
