I bet they do have a forum. Access to the point we put in: after you pass Burrells Ford Road on the SC side on 107, keep driving and you will drive into NC and then take a left on Bullpen Gap road, bear left nd park at the bridge, fishing down south of the bridge there is no trail that we could find and it gets tight, there are some nice runs on the way but we didnt get any bites. We walked down about 150-200 yards and it became narrow and impassible, so we turned around and fished back to the bridge, the pool this guy came from is at the bridge, it is pretty deep and wide. Above the bridge there is a great trail that, its on the ridge for the most part so you have to find your way down to the river, but some great looking water, we didnt get a chance to go far. It was worth checking out...we only saw 1 other fisherman.

Up to about bull pen bridge it is quite similar. Past that the river changes a lot with a lot more cascades and narrow rocky areas and also some stretches of the meandering river we love. There is a trail that roughly follows the river most of the way to Grimshawes bridge. This area actually at certain times of the year is a wonder section to dry fly fish. Have caught a few up to 16" on dries upstream of bull pen .

Default NC Trout

There is a message board, southeastern fly fishing, but it's not as "rich" as NGTO. I suspect due to a far smaller population base (of people, not fish BTW). Someone mentioned NC streams being closed in March, but that applies only to the hatchery supported streams. The C&R and DH streams are open for business. And by the way, you should find in both hatchery supported and DH streams a better crop of fish this year. With the crummy trout chow of recent years now replaced by a higher quality trout chow the fish are growing fat & happy.

Not a fishing board, but our local TU Chapter, Pisgah, has a great webpage and newsletter that should be of interest to anyone thinking of fishing our neigborhood. You can sign up to be notified when a new newsletter has been posted and we now have a Meet-Up link.
