Date: April 16, 2024

Time: 5:30 p.m.

Location: Headwaters Outfitter

Presenter: Hannah Overgaard, Fly Fishing Guide

Conserving Carolina and the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Transylvania County Center are offering a series of lectures, April – July, to better acquaint the public with the French Broad River, considered one of the oldest rivers in the world.

In collaboration with Headwaters Outfitters, a partner for the Upper French Broad Riverfest (a celebration of the French Broad River with education, exhibitors, music, food and free tubing occurring on June 15, 10 am – 3 pm), join Fly Fishing Guide Hannah Overgaard for a “how to” presentation on creek fishing in Western NC. All of the basics will be covered, including pre-trip planning, suggested rigging and flies, reading water and more. The presentation will last around 30-40 minutes with extra time for any questions or conversations on the matter. Headwaters Outfitters will stay open late for attendees to make purchases after hours!

Forks of the River Taproom will be open next door to serve your favorite brews! Non-Alcoholic options available as well.

Pre-registration is required at Headwaters Outfitters eventbright page, here.


The French Broad River Series programs are made possible thanks to our partnership with the NC Cooperative Extension, Transylvania County Center and Headwaters Outfitters.
