East Fork of French Broad
Local River Info

This roadside stream near Rosman has become one of the region’s most popular Delayed Harvest waters. The state stocks approximately 20,000 trout along 4.75 miles of East Fork Road between Glady Fork Road and the main stem of the French Broad. Catch-and-release regulations apply from October to May, and only single-hook artificial lures are allowed. All of the land along the East Fork is private, so please respect posted signs. There are three cascades along the East Fork, dumping into frothy holes brimming with stocked rainbow, brown and brook trout. These fish see a lot of flies, however, and can be snooty at times. If downsizing your tippet and fly sizes don’t work, walk up the road and try a different spot.
