The Tuckaseegee River is a fantastic western sized river that offers plenty of diversity in fishing options. With numerous fish species and special Delayed Harvest regulations by the state, the Tuckasegee River is a complete year around fishery.


From October to June the Tuckasegee offers a Catch and Release Delayed Harvest section of river that is roughly 8 miles long and is stocked full of Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout, with an average of 12,ooo trout per mile!! With numbers like this you’re sure to have the time of your life! You’ll have the chance to score a Tuckasegee Grand Slam as you cast your fly to Brown Trout, Rainbow, Trout and Brook Trout. The winter months are some of the best times to be out on the water, so don’t let the cold weather fool you, we are fishing and floating this river everyday during the winter months.

From April though October the lower sections of the Tuckasiegee River offer some of the best fishing in the state for Smallmouth Bass. Anglers fishing this river have caught Smallmouth Bass topping 6 lbs this summer. You’ll also catch Walleye, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Carp, and the occasional Muskie. Fly Fishing the lower Tuckasegee River offers solitude from other anglers and river users, there are many days that you’ll never see another person on the river.
