Guided Private Water

Davidson River Outfitters was the first fly shop in North Carolina to offer access to private trout water. Over the years, we have developed relationships with land owners that have made it possible to gain access to certain stretches of river that were previously off-limits to everyone. You will find our private waters are full of trout, some of which are measured in pounds rather than inches. The average size of the fish is roughly sixteen inches, with a lot of fish over the twenty-inch mark. Since we limit the number of anglers on our private waters, you will also find peace and quiet and have plenty of the river to yourself.

The Davidson Private Water  This stretch of the river is full of insect life and supports an impressive number of trout, as well as some very LARGE trout. You can fish the Davidson Private Water with one of our guides or you can pay a rod fee and fish it on your own. We allow only 12 anglers at a time on this three-mile section of the river, so be sure to make your reservation well in advance.

We limit our client to guide ratio to a maximum of three clients to one guide. This is so we can to provide you with the best service possible and ensure that everyone has a successful day on the water.
