Hazel Creek Camp Set for October 8 – 11, 2009

Summer isn’t even here yet but it’s already time to start planning for fall! We’ve set the date for our fall Hazel Creek fish camp. We do these camps in the spring and autumn and they’re always the highlight of the season!

We provide all the necessities like large tents you can stand up in and padded cots to sleep on. You bring your sleeping bag, fishing tackle and personal items. We take care of the rest. We’ve taken all the hassle out of this trip. You only need to show up and have a great time.

The camp meals are incredible. In fact, many participants claim they gain weight on this trip!

Hazel Creek is one of the most legendary trout streams in the Great Smoky Mountains. Its location puts it in one of the most remote locations in the Eastern United States. On the far shore of Fontana Lake our camp is nearly 20 miles from the nearest road, but a short boat ride puts us on the creek without a long hike.

October is one of the best months of the year for fly fishing in the Smokies. The weather is perfect for camping and trout usually rise to dry flies. Most trout are in the 6″ – 9″ size range with good opportunities for fish up to 12″, but occasionally larger one are caught.
