Tuckasegee River North Carolina Float Trip Raffles

We will be raffling off 2 full-day guided fly fishing float trips (a $400.00 value & includes lunch & beverages) donated to the Club by Jason from Hookers Fly Shop out of Sylva, NC. Tickets are $5.00 each. We will begin selling the tickets September 4, 2019 and will draw the winners at the February 19, 2020 evening meeting. The winners will then contact Jason and book their dates in April or May.

The Tuckasegee, known as the “Tuck,” originates around Cashiers and runs through Sylva, Dillsboro and Bryson City on its way to Fontana Lake. The river is dotted with stone fishing weirs built by Native Americans; this practice may have preceded the Cherokee in the area. The weirs are most easily viewed when water levels are low.

A float trip on the Tuck is an exhilarating way to experience fly fishing in the Southern Appalachians. The river has areas that are as wide as many western rivers, offering plenty of room for back casting. The popular Delayed Harvest section is approximately five miles long and located between the small towns of Dillsboro and Sylvia North Carolina. It is heavily stocked by the state with brown, rainbow and brook trout.
