Most of you will already know this, but there are an estimated 4,000 miles of trout streams and rivers in Western North Carolina, so come early or stay late and make this a great fishing vacation! From the fly fishing only section of the Davidson right outside the door of the Pisgah Wildlife Center, to the delayed harvest sections within a short drive, and the headwaters streams off the Blue Ridge Parkway, there is something for everyone and April is a great time of year to be fishing in the mountains.
