The South Toe River is a prime fishing spot, originating from Mount Mitchell and Pisgah National Forest. Its waters are teeming with wild rainbow, brook, and brown trout, thanks to the convergence of Right Prong and Left Prong streams. While upper sections have Wild Regulations, offering a challenge to anglers, the stretch above Black Mountain Campground to Pisgah Game Land Border is perfect for catch-and-release enthusiasts. Downstream, the lower South Toe River offers stocked fishing and wade-friendly areas, ideal for dry fly and nymph fishing, suitable for all skill levels throughout the year.
Kayakers and rafters can enjoy a serene journey along the South Toe River. Start near the Carolina Hemlocks Recreation Area and glide downstream through the captivating Blue Ridge Mountains scenery. Navigate gentle rapids and peaceful stretches until the take-out point near the Black Mountain Campground, providing an accessible and picturesque route.
