Catawba River

A Special Regulation Trout Stream

At about an hour’s drive from Hendersonville, North Carolina and 40 minutes from Asheville, the Catawba River’s special regulation section is quickly becoming a favorite.  The section below Lake James is loaded with stocked trout, and the Brown Trout are in a league of their own.

Because of its width, the Catawba River is perfect for float fishing.  With your Catawba River fishing guide at the helm you will easily be able to cast to new trout around every bend.  Come spend a day on the Catawba and sight cast dry flies from a precisely navigated drift boat that places you in the middle of the action.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission has designated this section of the Catawba as the only Special Regulation Section in the State.  Visit our fishing blog for a short description of the special regulation section.
