TALES OF FISHING, CHAPTER NEWS AND OTHER USEFUL ARTICLES
Hello Fishing Enthusiast,
On behalf of Ashe County, I invite you and your fishing buddies to visit beautiful Ashe County, NC located in the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Ashe County offers some of the finest fishing in the U. S. Our streams are stocked with almost 70,000 brook, rainbow and brown trout each year. In the North and South Forks of the New River you will find smallmouth bass, redbreast sunfish and rock bass.
Although there are many fishing locations, the Ashe County Fishing Guide highlights 24 access points (17 trout locations and 7 bass locations). Since most Ashe County trout streams are located on private property or in DOT right of ways, always respect the rights of property owners and leave the streams in better condition than you found them.
If you are a member of a fishing club, I encourage you to share this invitation with all your members.
To assist in your planning, attached below are a fishing map and coordinates. For a digital version, visit www.fishashe.com. If you would like copies of the printed map, contact Cathy Barr at the address below.
