In Highlands & Cashiers, the upper portions of the Cullasaja & Chattooga Rivers are popular. NC Rainbow Trout prefer generally clear flowing waters with turbulence for oxygenation over gravel, rock or sandy bottoms.  The North Carolina State Record for Rainbow Trout is 20 lbs.- 3 oz.  Fishing dry flies, streamers, and nymphs that imitate natural foods works well.
