This retreat is ideal for those seeking relaxation, inspiration, or a trout fishing or hunting adventure. The South Toe River, situated near Burnsville in the western part of North Carolina, offers excellent fly fishing opportunities with year-round regulations. Originating at Mt. Mitchell, the river is formed by two streams and flows across the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s also fed by Hemphill Creek, Rock Creek, Lower Creek, and Upper Creek. In the lower section, it merges briefly with the North Toe River before joining the Nolichucky River. The South Toe River features various access points, including a stretch flowing through Pisgah Game Lands. Some sections are designated for catch and release with artificial lures only.
Brook trout, brown trout, and rainbows inhabit the river, a mix of wild and stocked trout in the hatchery sections, and predominantly wild trout in the rest. The river’s charm extends to its tributaries, contributing to its appeal for fly fishing enthusiasts. While accessible throughout, some of the best fishing spots might require hiking. Forest Service Road #472 offers access to the upper part of the river, running alongside it for around five miles. The decline allows for runs and pools, making it an ideal area for fishing.
Spring is optimal for fishing due to insect hatches and perfect water temperatures. While summer may become warm in some areas, fall is another good season for fishing, second only to spring. Winter offers trout on warmer days, though hikes could be challenging, especially near the headwaters at Mt. Mitchell. Fishing at dawn or dusk offers better cover, considering the stream’s popularity. Cloudier days are preferable, as clear water might spook fish. For an authentic fly fishing experience, plan your visit between March and May.
