Come Fish Our Mountain Heritage Trout Streams!

The Town of Maggie Valley is a North Carolina Mountain Heritage Trout City!  The three mile section of Jonathan Creek in Maggie Valley is classified as a hatchery-supported trout water.  Fishing here is popular and fun!

Mountain Heritage Trout Waters Program

The Mountain Heritage Trout Waters program is a cooperative effort between the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and local governments to encourage trout fishing as a heritage tourism activity in western North Carolina cities that are designated as a “Mountain Heritage Trout Water City.”

Currently, 17 cities are participating in the program. Each of these cities provides public access to a trout stream that runs through or is adjacent to the city. North Carolina residents and non-residents who want to fish in a stream that is designated as a Mountain Heritage Trout Water may purchase a 3-day license for $8. The license is valid only for waters that are designated as Mountain Heritage Trout Waters. Anglers with an inland fishing license can fish in Mountain Heritage Trout Waters without a Mountain Heritage Trout Waters license..

Two quick and easy ways to purchase a Mountain Heritage Trout Waters license using a credit card:

·      Call 888-248-6834. (8 a.m.-5 p.m., Mon.-Fri.)

·      Buy online

Important note: The Mountain Heritage Trout Water license can only be purchased online or by calling the toll-free number above. Wildlife Service Agents do not sell this license.

To fish for trout in Public Mountain Trout Waters that are not designated as “Mountain Heritage Trout Waters,” anglers age 16 and over must have a valid inland fishing license.  Purchase a fishing license here.

No rod and reel? No problem!

Anglers can borrow a rod and reel free of charge for the day.  (A deposit is required but will be returned when equipment is returned.)  The loaner rods and reels are provided by city and town governments and the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission through the agency’s Mountain Heritage Trout Waters Tackle Loaner Program. This program operates like a library. Anglers of all ages register at participating Mountain Heritage Trout Waters program-tackle-loaner sites to receive a tackle loaner ID card, which allows them to check out a rod and reel for the day. Loaner rods and reels are available for a one-day loan and must be returned to the participating loaner site by the end of the business day.
