In fishing, trout are one of the favorite “fishing friends” of most anglers.

These crafty fish are abundant in our area.

In Western North Carolina we have three species of trout:

Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and Brook Trout.

Rivers in and near Cherokee County include the Hiwassee, Valley River, Nottley, Ocoee (Polk County, Tennessee) and Nantahala Rivers (Swain & Macon Counties). The Hiwassee river is approximately 147 miles long. Its headwaters are in North Georgia but flows through Cherokee County turning westward to Tennessee ultimately flowing into the Tennessee river. The Valley river begins as a pair of springs from within the Snowbird Mountains and flows southwest into the Hiwassee river.  Andrews is located in northeastern Cherokee County at 35°12′00″N 83°49′35″W, on the south side of the Valley River, a southwest-flowing tributary of the Hiwassee River and part of the Tennessee River watershed. The town of Murphy is situated at the confluence of the Hiwassee and Valley rivers. The rivers are a popular source of outdoor adventure including: white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing and fishing.

Andrews, North Carolina is a small town virtually untouched by large city influences and remains a place to enjoy a more leisurely pace of life.

Come by and sit a spell and imagine yourself rafting, hiking, fishing, or biking. Take a ride on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad or gear up for the annual WNC Wagon Train. Stroll down Main Street and shop for antiques, clothing, furniture and unique gifts. You may decide to go bike riding in the Nantahala Forest or whitewater rafting down the Nantahala River. Numerous hiking trails will satisfy your need to view the vistas, from easy to the most difficult. The fishing is great whether you decide to fish one of our rivers, or on one of our lakes. Ride your motorcycle on the Tail of the Dragon a short distant away. We will show you a good time!

This is the place to lay back, kick off your shoes, wade in the creeks, jump in the river, sing, dance, and enjoy the hospitality of the mountain people. Andrews, NC…the little town in the heart of it all.The Andrews, NC
