Outing Details: DCFF will be hosting a trip to Waynesville, NC to trout fish in several of the delayed harvest streams in the area. The Tuckasegee River, West Fork of the Pigeon River, the Upper Nantahala River, Laurel River, and the Shelton-Laurel Creek plus others are within 1 hour of the motel and provide some of the best trout fishing in the southeast. Past trips have produced a very successful catch with many fish in the 17-20 inch range.

We will be staying at the Oak Park Inn which provides excellent accommodations. The three night trip will cost approximately $300 per person; there is no up front charge for this trip, but each participant is expected to pay for their trip costs. DCFF has already reserved a block of rooms at the Inn, so be sure to sign up early to reserve your room.
