Winter Fishing

This may seem like a crazy question but is there fishing near Blowing Rock in Winter? We'll be up the week after Christmas and tjhought it might be interesting. Looking for a guided trip and any recommendations/reviews.

Thanks

The fish of choice would be trout in a mountain stream. Fishing is tough in the winter. Go on a warmer sunny day in the afternoon when the water warms up. The South Holston River in Tenn. about 90 minutes away is great in the winter. Also try the Watauga River in Boone. They have a great stocking program. Here is a list of local guides. The first one is the best.

I don't know much about them. This is who I would use. He has been noted in several national fishing magazines.

Look up the Foscoe fishing company. Their guides are great. We have used

them several times
