Toe River Fishing

While most associate the Toe River with the larger, Toe River Valley area and Toe River Arts endeavors that are celebrated throughout the region, the Toe River is fantastic for not only NC white water rafting but also fly fishing in North Carolina. The Toe River flows through large, remote areas, creating the perfect quiet spots to enjoy Western North Carolina fly fishing all alone. Near Spruce Pine and the town of Newland, there is an award-winning section of the river that has been aptly named a Mountain Heritage Trout Water. This two-mile section of the Toe River is heavily restricted for Western North Carolina fly fishing, yet if you follow the daily reel limits, size limits and lure restrictions that are laid out by the N.C. Deptartment of Wildlife Resources Commission, you will find some great ones. Of course, by law, you can’t keep anything you catch on the Toe River. The Toe River is a Western North Carolina Fly Fishing river that has been designated a catch and release, delayed harvest regulated river. The trout season typically starts in the Blue Ridge Mountains around October, when the leaves are the most beautiful, and it ends after spring in June.

In addition to the Toe River and the many area creeks and mountain streams that flow from this body of water, there are a few great trout ponds and farms that allow families to spend the day fly fishing in NC. Most are a short distance away from the Burnsville NC vacation rentals at Alpine Village Resort.
