Folks, its that time of year again. Delayed Harvest season is upon us. Since I have been so busy guiding on the Watauga River in East Tennessee, I haven’t had a chance to check in on my home water. So this past Thursday I met up with a good friend to fish Wilson Creek. Thanks to recent rains, the flows were just right. Fish were active and the fishing was steady. We fished for a few hours catching a bunch of rainbow trout.
For those of you who have never experienced Wilson Creek, you are missing out. Wilson Creek is located in northwestern Caldwell county and it flows out of Pisgah National forest where it eventually dumps into the Johns River. The section we primarily guide on is located on the edge of Pisgah National Forrest and it is managed under North Carolinas Delayed Harvest program. The state stocks a large amount of brook, brown, and rainbow trout during the season. Wilson Creek just happens to be a Wild and Scenic river and the mountain scenery is second to none.
Wilson Creek is a great place for beginning fly fishers. Appalachian Fly Guides offers full and half day wade trips on Wilson Creek. We know Wilson Creek better than anyone other outfitter in the area.
