Appalachian Fly Guides

Fly Fishing Guide Service in North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee

Welcome to the home of Appalachian Fly Guides. We are a licensed and insured fly fishing guide service located near Boone, NC. We specialize in guided float and wade fly fishing trips in Western North Carolina and East Tennessee.  Our home waters are the Catawba River Tailrace below Lake James and Wilson Creek.

The Southern Appalachian Mountains are home to miles or streams, rivers, and lakes. We target trout, smallmouth bass, and carp with fly and/or light tackle. Our guided float trips take place on the Catawba River Tailrace below lake James in NC, the Tuckasegee River in NC, the French Broad River in NC, the North Toe / Nolichucky in NC, the Watauga River in TN, and the South Holston River in TN. Wade trips take place on Wilson Creek or one of the many delayed harvest, fly fish only, or wild head water streams in North Carolina or Tennessee. We also offer lake trips for carp on the fly. We primarily sight fish carp from a flats boat on area lakes.

Western North Carolina is a great place to live and vacation. If find yourself in the high country and are near Boone, Blowing Rock, West Jefferson, North Wilkesboro, Morganton, or Asheville, NC and you are looking for something to do, why not try a fly fishing trip.
