New to area and trying to get ready for spring. I have another post about smallmouth fishing on New River but curious about trout fishing. Love fly fishing. Online looks like everything is private land. Where can I go fly fishing for trout?
Go the NCwildlife and click on the fishing link. Next, Where to fish. That will give you search options for Public trout fishing waters. Search in Alleghany county will give you lots of options. Public trout waters are often privately held properties that are open to the public for trout fishing. Landowners on those designated waters have the option to post their property against trespass so pay attention to your surroundings. All these designated waters will have ncwildlife signs posted along the stream to help you identify designated waters. Looks like the Little River in Sparta has a delayed harvest section that would probably be a good place to start. Delayed harvest waters are often stocked in the fall, so no need to wait till spring! Enjoy!
