Asheville North Carolina area fishing is great right now! The topwater smallmouth bass fishing has been the deal- quality smallies are PREFERRING to eat big surface items! Terrestrials and baitfish seem to be most effective along shady banks and eddies behind big rocks. The tailwaters are still the place to be for summer trout fishing. Sulfer mayflies are hatching mid afternoon on the South Holston, so expect outstanding dry fly fishing for the next few weeks over there. Some summer dates are still available, so give us a call to set up a fishing trip you won't forget!
