Upper Creek Angler- Fly Fishing Guides

leah kirk

Upper Creek Angler, located in Morganton, NC, specializes in fly fishing for trout in Western North Carolina, especially in native trout waters and delayed harvest streams.  Native trout waters and delayed harvest streams start flowing after a short, twenty-five minute drive.  And some of the best fishing in the South can be found within an hour and half drive in several directions.

"....We had a blast and I am so happy that Nick not only caught a trout on his fly rod but that he caught the biggest trout.  He said he learned so much from you yesterday as I also did.  A great experience. Thanks again and we will be repeat customers, maybe even a float trip.  You were everything that I had hoped and knew that you would be....."

Not your run of the mill flyfishing guide service....


Our guided fly fishing trips in beautiful western NC offers the visiting angler incredible opportunities: 
- Aggressive brown trout in the Catawba River Tailrace below Lake James
- Smallmouth bass in the North Toe, French Broad and Nolichucky Rivers  

We are not your typical fishing "bums" working the local rivers until it's time to move along to Alaska or the Bahamas.  
Our guides are hard working, fun loving, local outdoorsmen that have a passion for flyfishing!
When booking with On The Fly Guide Service, you'll fish a local stream that our guides fish when they are not guiding.
A trip with OTFGS will always be a pleasant day on the water with a knowledgeable, friendly, local guide that we hope you will consider a friend from that day forward.   We do not hire college students to row our boats, a trip with OTFGS means you'll be fishing with Scott, Chad, or Jeremy!
