North Carolina Fly Fishing - New River Fishing Report
The New River is one of the best fishing rivers in the country and it runs directly through Ashe County. Ashe County is one of the most desired North Carolina Fly Fishing destinations in North Carolina with numerous fishing guide outfitters that offer trophy smallmouth bass trips on the New River and other Ashe County tributaries. The scenic beauty, spectacular serenity and teeming waters of the New River make for some of the best guided float trips in the country. Guided trips on the New River are recommended as smallmouth bass can be unpredictable and difficult to locate. Dedicated as a National Scenic River in 1976, this gentle river is the centerpiece of New River State Park.

The forks of the New River converge in Ashe County and majestically flow north into Virginia, creating spectacular scenery and wide, placid currents. The New River is the ideal setting for a day navigating the river and fishing for freshwater game fish like smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, brown trout, walleye, bluegill and muskellunge; itís easy to understand why so many want to call this area of North Carolina home.

For a hatchery supported fishing experience, Three Top Creek offers 10 miles of serene waters near the rural Three Top Mountain game land area. Three Top Creek, located in Creston NC, is an enjoyable, laid back Ashe County fishing experience. Helton Creek is a favorite delayed harvest trout creek in Ashe County. Stocked with brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout, Helton Creek is located right outside West Jefferson NC and Regency Propertiesís premier Ashe County Real Estate. For fishing near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Peak Creek flows from Ashe County into Trout Lake, near the Moses Cone Manor. Near the Alleghany County border, Nathanís Creek is another spectacular tributary in Ashe County.

Whatever your style of fishing, Ashe County has endless opportunities for exceptional fishing. Please remember that fishing licenses are required in most areas. Signs posted on popular fishing rivers designate the type of fishing allowed in those areas. Be sure to check out the New River Fishing Report before heading out to the New River on your own.
