Delayed Harvest Waters...and more!

It's almost that time of year again...my favorite time! On October 1st our Delayed Harvest (DH) season begins. This is the time of year that really caters to the fly fishermen. It is artificial only, catch and release only regulations.
The DH regs go into effect at the same time each year for many of our area trout streams, both in East TN and Western North Carolina. We guide in both states and stay very busy this time of year. With the stocking of better than average fish, coupled with decreased activity from tubers and swimmers, it is the best case scenario for many a trout fisherman in this part of the world.
We are also offering some great new fishing venues for lake run rainbow and brown trout this year. We are partnering with another great outfitter to put on a series of camps that we'll be operating out of for these venues. These will be all inclusive camps for clients to take advantage of multi-day offerings for these species. Our camps will provide all food, lodging and guide services for clients that would like to have an opportunity to target these fish. Here's the info. on the camps.
