  • Banner Elk/Boone area

    I am heading up to the Banner Elk/Boone area in a few weeks and was hoping to fish a few mornings will my wife sleeps in. Does anybody have any experience with this area? Any recomedations on where to go would be appreciated.

    The area around where you are going is high mountain water, but it is affected by hot weather just like everywhere else. Tons of small creeks in the area but difficult to impossible to give info on them and if you are going when the heat is still on it would not help you anyway. Think about heading over to Tennessee and look at the South Holston or Watauga tailwaters. Check out Foscoe Fly Fishing Company, they can give you some local advice.

      Boone/Banner Elk

      Check with these folks and get some local info. I do not head that was often but in my area Brevard/Hendersonville/Asheville we have had a lot or rain this summer, especially early this summer and our streams are in very good shape.

        Everything in the Boone area is over 3k in elevation, and average daytime highs are 5-10 degrees cooler on average than SW NC (Asheville/Brevard/Franklin area) in the summer. Its also been a cool, wet summer throughout the NC mountains. With the exception of the most heavily sun-exposed stocker streams in the lower valleys, water temps in the Boone/Blowing Rock area have remained in the ideal range this summer. Heat stress isn't an issue this year.

          Depends on the sort of fishing you want to do.
