This officially recognized trail connects anglers with 15 prime fishing spots across the county, perfect for catching brook, brown and rainbow trout. Jackson County features the longest contiguous stretch of waters that have been designated by the NC Fish & Wildlife Department as NC Mountain Heritage Trout Waters. There are more than 4,600 miles of pristine waters in the county that are stocked with more than 90,000 trout each year. Reserve a tour with one of the many local outfitters who navigate these waters day in and day out. Guided tours are available for those looking for a structured, yet authentic Jackson County experience. Pick up a free, water-resistant Fly Fishing Trail Map at the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce or the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce upon your arrival or request one from our website.
