When most people think of fly fishing, the famous trout streams of the Northeastern and Western United States immediately spring to mind because those are the streams that authors most like to write about. However, if remote backcountry access, wild trout, and picture perfect scenery are your passion, then North Carolina has probably been keeping an important secret well hidden from you. Here in western North Carolina is NC's Best Kept Trout Fishing Secret, we have the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains which are a sub-chain of the Appalachian Mountains (the oldest mountains in the world) and some areas here get as much as sixty to eighty inches of rainfall per year! In turn, this excessive rainfall produces an extremely profuse, jungle-like, hardwood forest of Oak, Maple, Birch and many other species of trees along with many species of understory trees as well. In addition, the granite bed rock that forms the spine of the Blue Ridge mountains is riddled with rich deposits of limestone which dissolve over time to create a vast, mineral-rich, aquifer which gives rise to a countless number of springs which then combine to form some of the most beautiful Spring Creeks/Limestone Streams the U.S. has to offer. In turn, these creeks then flow through a fairy-tale setting of intensely green Temperate Rainforest that cradles and protects both the stream and the angler alike. Plus, the large deposits of limestone combined with other dissolved minerals in the water create a base for an exceptionally rich food chain of aquatic plants, aquatic insects, and fish as well as other animals that depend on the stream for sustenance such as Beaver, Mink, Martin, and numerous bird species.
