Headwaters Outfitters

About Us

Tucked away in the heart of Transylvania County, we serve the Rosman, Brevard, Lake Toxaway, Cashiers, Highlands, Hendersonville, Asheville, and Greenville areas; and are just a short weekend trip from Charlotte, Atlanta and Knoxville. Founded in 1992, we are proud family owned and operated Outdoor Recreation business.

Our Fly Shop and Outdoor Outfitters sits at the confluence of the West and North forks of the French Broad River, where the historic French Broad River begins. Minutes from the famous Davidson River and the Delayed Harvest section of the East Fork. Headwaters Outfitters is surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest, Dupont State Forest, Nantahala National Forest and Gorges State Park.

What we do

We offer Guided Fly Fishing Trips on the many public trout streams Western North Carolina has to boast about. We also have pristine private waters where you are guaranteed solitude. Our professional guides have decades of experience on the streams and rivers of the Appalachians to offer you the best experience possible on your guided trip. Our School of Trout is an introductory course where you will learn basic knots, casting, etymology, how to read water, and everything in between.

Our Canoe and Kayak river trips down the main channel of the French Broad offer fun for the whole family. Enjoy a 3, 4 or 7 hour trip on beginner friendly Class I water. Camp overnight riverside at our private canoe in only campground. You may also choose to cool off with a lazy river tube ride. All of our trips including the canoeing and kayaking are self-guided with the exception of our seasonal special events and personalized paddling instruction courses.
