I'm planning a trip to Macon County Bank in the next week or so and thought I might slip the flyrod in with me SINCE I'm gonna be in such good trout fishing country. My contact there mentioned Cartoogechaye Creek as being a good place to go that gets stocked starting in April? I don't mind fishing the DH streams but would rather check out some wild streams. Can anyone recommend any streams/areas to fish? I appreciate any advice via posts or PM's...thanks - John

You'll be near the Chattooga, Nantahala and Little Tennessee Rivers. The Chattooga is mainly Trout near Franklin. Down stream from the Hwy 28 Bridge (below Highlands) is a mix of Trout, Redeye Bass and Bream. The Little Tennesse north of Franklin has Smallouth Bass and the Nantahala has Trout above and below Hwy 64...

Wish I could head that way in a week or so...
