    Went to Waynesville, Brevard area for a weeks vacation... fished the N. Mills River, Davidson river, and some high elevation streams.... Total 10 Brook trout, 7 Rainbows, and 1 Brown...all released unharmed... biggest was a 18" Rainbow

    Glad to hear a positive report from that area, was wondering how the rivers and trout held up with all the flooding. AN 18" Bow is A good fish in anybody's book.

    how was the mills? lots of people? did you hike up above the bridge? just wondering what you saw...
    Davidson is hit or miss for me. I've had some great times camping up there, but no as much fishing.

    Any fly choice that seemed to appeal to them?
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.
