Tanasee Creek

Off Tanasee Creek Road, east of Tuckasegee, is a stretch of North Carolina water that shelters plenty of wild brown trout.

The creek is one of 15 fly fishing spots accessed by the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail (flyfishingtrail.com), the only designated fly-fishing trail in the U.S.
