Spring 2021 Headwaters Outfitters private water fishing trip
May 21st, 22nd & 23rd 2021
It’s back, after the COVID delay we are proud to announce a spring 2021 private water fishing trip and surrounding area.
This is through Headwaters Outfitters in Rosman west of Brevard and offer an excellent opportunity to fish two private stocked streams. These are on the North & East fork of the French Broad river. The cost is around $50.00 per person- per day. You can fish one day or both days. You can also fish many of the delayed harvest streams and wild streams in the area. The East Fork is Saturday and supports up to ten anglers. The North fork is Sunday and supports up to six anglers. There will not be a guide with us during the event. Fishing times are from 9am-4pm. If you are new to the trip or unfamiliar with the area, we can assign you a fishing buddy for the trip. Sign up by filling out the below form. Most of the members will go up on Friday and fish the DH streams and then get on the private water on the weekend to avoid the crowds. Fred Frank will be the leader of the trip. If you have questions you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lodging has been arranged with the Brook Trout Inn, Sapphire.
We have arranged for a discounted rate of $109 per night with two nights minimum stay, for single person, single room. You will need to make your lodging reservation directly with the Brook Trout Inn. You can call them at 828-273-3700. Visit their website at; www.brooktroutinnsapphire.com. The reservation is under Blue Ridge Trout unlimited.
East Fork of the French Broad: The east fork is wide and deep with many long pools that harbor a lot of big fish. Most of the trout go from 16-25 plus inches that will break your line and heart quickly. The private water section is almost a mile and a quarter long. It easily accommodates 8-10 people.
North Fork of the French Broad: This private section of the stream is only about ¾ of a mile long, but narrow with a lot of pools and riffles. It has a lot of big fish in it, plus a good population of wild rainbows. This stream will accommodate 6 people.
Here are some photos from previous trips.
