South Mills River
Local River Info

Formed by numerous feeder creeks high along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the South Mills becomes fishable for fly anglers by the time it enters the Cradle of Forestry Historic Area off Hwy. 276. There, this candidate for federal Wild & Scenic River designation is pocked with beaver ponds full of small, wild brown trout. But below the old gauging station on FS 476, the river widens as it drops over several beautiful cascades, including scenic High Falls. If backcountry fishing for spooky wild browns and rainbows is your idea of nirvana, the South Mills is heaven on earth. Access to the interior of the roadless area is via the 12-mile long South Mills River Trail. The stream is classified Wild Trout and has no closed season.
