I'm not familiar with the two streams and rarely hear anyone discuss them...there may be some smallmouth bass and sunfish but.... Your best bet may be to plan to fish the Delayed Harvest sections of Mitchell River and also Roaring River inside Stone Mt. State Park....maybe 20 minutes from your location.

The regs on water designated as Hatchery Supported read "no fishing allowed," during Mar.

But on undesignated water here's what the regs say....

Some waters that are not designated as Public Mountain Trout
Waters contain mountain trout. When fishing in undesignated
waters, there is no size limit or bait restriction, and the creel
limit is seven trout per day. A trout fishing license is not required
to fish undesignated waters, and there is no closed season for
fishing. However, trout may not be possessed or retained in the
creel when fishing undesig nated waters during the closed season
for Hatchery Supported Trout Waters
except on power
reservoirs and municipal water supply reservoirs.

Delayed Harvest means just that....harvesting is delayed...until the first Saturday in June. Check out the descriptions of the various trout stream designations at the state website previously posted: Delayed Harvest, Hatchery Supported, Wild etc. . Not sure where you got the info on Stone Mt. but only one stream there is fly fishing only. The main stream thru the park is Delayed Harvest and that specifies single hook artificial lures...flies or spinning.

Some folks find the regs a little confusing at first. But, read and re-read the stream designations on the state website a time or two and they become more clear, in addition to reading the descriptions printed on the placards on the trees along the stream. .
