The Pigeon River of western North Carolina and east Tennessee rises above Canton, North Carolina, is impounded by Walters Dam, enters Tennessee, and flows into the French Broad River, just past Newport. This river runs right in front of the entrance to our property.  There is a pull off just .2 miles down the road after turning left out of the main property, where you can park & walk down to the river.  In addition to fishing, kids love to skip rocks or just cool off in the mountain stream.

Another great place to fish is Ferguson’s Trout Pond, located just 8 miles from Buffalo Creek.  This pond is behind Ferguson’s General Store & since it is on private property no fishing license is required.  They have cane poles for your use as well as bait available.  They charge @ $5 per lb caught.
