Float Trips

Our guided river float trips out of Hendersonville North Carolina are an exceptional way to enjoy fly fishing in Western North Carolina.  Sit back, relax and let our professional oarsmen steer you within casting distance of abundant Brook, Rainbow, and Brown Trout.

Our goal is to provide you a seamless, enjoyable experience from start to finish!  Our typical Float Trips can accommodate up to two anglers per trip. We may be able to cater to larger parties, but we do require more advance notice.   Visit our rivers page to pick which guided float trip sounds best for your party or have one our fishing guides help steer you in the right direction. We can help clients determine which river best suit their fishing objectives.

A typical day fly fishing with Up-Close Outfitters Fly Fishing will start with the guide picking his clients up and shuttling them to the river.   If this is just not practical we will agree upon a convenient meeting spot.  We typically spend between 6 and 8 hours fishing on a full-day guided fishing trip.  In this time, we work closely with your party on mastering techniques, reading the waters, and landing your catch.  On many of our trips we also provide a hot lunch on the shore.
