I bought some property in West Jefferson over the winter and I am now getting the chance to visit it now and do some trout fishing. I am not very familiar with this part of NC. When I was there in October I fished the big horse creek and had some luck but I don't know what the water are like and I need to start my journey of figuring it out on that part of the mountains. Its pretty warm now and not the best time for trout  but the y are out there . I was looking for larger water that could be a little cooler that small creeks. or some higher elevation streams . if anyone could give me some starting points for this I would greatly appreciate it. I have all week to explore so I can't wait. thanks in advance

I suggest a keg of beer and brisket at your place. You will be bound to get some useful information then

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Some honest, helpful advice:

Here is how I find high-elevation small creeks that have good fishing:

It's a foolproof system:

It really works regardless of county:

1: Find a creek. I usually look under those big concrete things that you drive across when you're going down the road. If it looks all watery under there, you're good to go.

2: Find a stick. Throw it in the creek. Notice which direction it floats in. Go the opposite direction of that.

3: When you have gotten a long ways in the opposite direction of the floating stick, check to see if the creek is now smaller and stick your hand in the water to see if it is cooler.

4:Cast a fly into the water. If nothing hits it, it is probably not a good place to fish.

If a fish hits it and it looks like this:

" class="fancybox" data-fancybox="topic">" title="" alt="" width="450" height="600" class="bbc_img" loading="lazy">

or this:

" class="fancybox" data-fancybox="topic">" title="" alt="" width="646" height="600" class="bbc_img" loading="lazy">

,then you need to go further upstream.

If trout hit your flies frequently, keep fishing there.

5:Repeat as necessary.

Just the opinions of one of those inbred, mentally deficient, inferior Smoky Mountain rednecks that you seem to love so much, but hey, it works for me in my simple world.

We can't all exist in your lofty plane of superior transcendental genius and blue-blooded aristocratic elitism. The world needs ignorant redneck trash, too. Somebody gotta dig the ditches and clean the outhouses. We just doin' the best we can, Boss.

Slick, you really think somebody is gonna give up all their favorite creeks on a public internet forum? And we're ignorant? In other words, find your creeks like we find ours. Go fishing. It's half the fun of it.

Flysean, perhaps you should have found a couple good creeks before purchasing land, although I believe you're full of shit regarding your land purchase claim.

The native residents of the hill country do not want or need you, or your insufferable flatfooted ilk, creating demand for river/creek shacks or any other variety of riparian development.  That be your welcome mat.

County map and a six pack works pretty well for me.  I don't always find fish, but I always have fun. http://ncpaws.org/wrcmapbook/FishingAreas.aspx

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

I think you tried this before and it didn't work.    Who's the ignorant one that can't find a fucking trout stream in your own backyard?

As a wise man once said "git"

Yup, going fishing

Oh yeah. Forgot about those rants.
What a complete asshole to come back on here again.
Hope he becomes crayfish food. Oh, that would require him exploring. Snap.  n!n
