It’s not everyday that you get the chance to head out with one of your advertising partners and wet a few lines. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to meet up with the What The Fin? guys at their headquarters in Greenville, South Carolina, and hang out while chasing Appalachian rainbow trout.
Deep in the San Juan National Forest lies the Piedra River, a gorgeous freestone stream that is one of the southwestern Colorado’s gems. But how do you get there? We put in the miles and found out the hard way.
Situated near Waynesville, North Carolina, Cataloochee Valley is one of those places that’s worth going off the beaten path for. We may have not found any trout on this frigid early spring trip, but what we did find made freezing our asses off worth it.
