Reel in something historic.

Cherokee, North Carolina, is filled with secret fishing holes and the ancient techniques of the Cherokee themselves. The earliest Cherokee fishers were skilled trappers. They constructed underwater raceways or stone weirs to collect and harvest the native sicklefin redhorse, brook trout, and other fish in large baskets. The dried and smoked meat was preserved as a winter food staple.

For the modern-day angler, Cherokee offers everything from competitive fly-fishing tournaments to tagged tournaments to daily fishing on some of the best waters in the United States. The 30 miles of streams on the Cherokee Indian Reservation offer both food and fun for serious and amateur anglers. Our mission is to remember and respect ancient traditions while providing the most enjoyable fishing experience we can.
