Going up to Maggie Valley to the in-laws mountain house on Friday. Only time I have done any fishing, went out with Roger Lowe and we drove what seemed like a couple of hours away to the Natahala. However, I will not have that amount of time to get away. Any local spots, or spots nearby to wet a fly for a few hours on Saturday? And how is the trout fishing this time of the year? Is it even worth the effort? Thanks in advance.

I have driven over to Cherokee from MV, bought a day permit on the Indian Reservation (i recall $7 a day a year or two ago), and caught a few small rainbows on that river/creek that flows through Cherokee -- just above town. Used light spinning gear and in-line spinners -- most stores sell those kinds of spinning lures. Not as exciting as false albacore, but it's fun on light gear and the scenery is beautiful. fyi -- joel

Cherokee is one option, also go on into the Great Smoky Park, plenty of creeks and the fishing can be good, the Nantahala is actually pretty close even though it seemed like a couple hours drive. You have Jonathan Creek right there at Maggie it's hatchery supported also Hemphil Creek just up 276 which is also hatchery supported.

Thanks for the info. It has been many years ago, that I fished there. I guess from the in-laws house it seemed like it was far away. But I was hoping there was something right in that area where I could wet a line. Thanks again for the information. I am going to pack up my stuff, hopefully I will be able to use it!
