Up-Close Outfitters is dedicated to showing you the best fly fishing in Western North Carolina. Our fly fishing team is committed to understanding our clients’ needs and catering the fishing trip to fulfill his or hers wishes.
At Up-Close Outfitters Fly Fishing, we believe in the elegance and artistry of the fly rod. We are dedicated to providing the knowledge and expertise you would expect when throwing small flies precisely targeted at our local Brook Trout and Brown Trout. Whether you are interested in a private fishing lesson or a float trip down one of our scenic rivers, we promise you an amazing experience.
We are proud to offer trout fishing on an unparalleled stretch of privately owned trout streams. Up Close Outfitters has exclusive access to over two miles of these gated streams in the headwaters of the Big Hungry River and Clear Creek, which is near Hendersonville, Lake Lure, and Flat Rock. Our privately managed stocking program on the Big Hungry River offers unbelievable opportunities to land trophy-size trout, which are available exclusively to Up-Close Outfitter’s Fly Fishing clients.
Our professional North Carolina fly fishing guide service takes great pride in teaching beginner and experienced clients the secrets of fly fishing. You will have the option to float down the Watauga River for giant trout, or to float the Tuckasegee and Broad Rivers for trout and smallmouth bass. Trout fishermen, who enjoy wading, will want to try one of our private streams or wild waters of the National Forest. Whether you prefer catch-and-release or to fill the frying pan, we have the right trip for you. Whichever trip you choose, we guarantee you’ll learn a few new tricks and come away with great memories.
Book a trip today and allow our guide service to treat you and your friends to an unforgettable fly fishing experience.
