Fly Fishing Trips with Jesse Brown’s & Updated Fire Ban

Segment 2, November 11th, 2023

Deer hunters wake up!  But please be safe with tree stands & motorists need to be aware during the deer rut.
False albacore is happening at the southern Outer Banks on Harker’s Island & the Cape Lookout area. A Sage nine-weight fly rod or a Sage ten-weight Fly Rod is perfect for this type of fly fishing.

Trout streams continue to be low. However the low water has helped the top water fly fishing action in the mountains.  Fly Fishing trips have continued to be popular with the guides from Jesse Brown’s.  The guides are helping everyone from beginners to more experience anglers that are working on specific portions of the sport.  Please pick a date and email us at  The rest following that is easy.

The lack of rain has put burn bans on thirty counties in western North Carolina.  However, the burn bans don’t mean that you cannot have a camp fire?

No.  You can still have a campfire in a fire ring or a managed fire area.  This can change depending on the situation which not only includes rainfall but also wind situation.

UPDATE on FIRE BANS:  thirteen state parks in NC have a campfire ban in place now.  These state parks include:

Chimney Rock State Park
Crowders Mountain State Park
Elk Knob State Park
Gorges State Park
Grandfather Mtn State Park
Lake James State Park
