Nantahala River | Rainbow Springs | Franklin, NC  It is one of the most special places around here to a selected few who are fortunate enough to own property in there.  It is surrounded by the US Forestry Service lands and the Nantahala River flows right threw it into the Nantahala Lake and on to Fontana Dam.  The Nantahala River in Rainbow Springs is NOT a “fly-fishing only” stream nor is it “catch & release” stream. The NC “wild trout natural bait waters” “single hook” mountain trout regulations apply, which means it is open for fishing year round, day light hours only, bait is allowed, no treble hooks, and the daily limit is 4 trout over 7 inches per property owner. Some property owners believe because it is private waters and stocked privately, those regulations do not apply.  It is...

Are YOU a Local Expert for your area? If not it's Time to go FISHING! I wrote a post back in January of 2010 about The Nantahala River/Rainbow Springs area in Macon County Franklin, NC mainly about how its protected, the fishing rights and a rare salmon run in the Fall every year.  It is a unusual area and mostly very private and surrounded by the Nantahala Forestry Lands.   I was working with a very fun nice couple from Alabama back in 2009/2010 that were looking for a second home here in the mountains of Western NC.  We were all over Macon County Franklin, NC and over the mountain to Sylva, NC that is normally out of my area but wanted me to travel if I would.  We share MLS but its not my territory per say and neither is Nantahala even though its in Macon County where I live.   We end...

    In a beautiful part of the Nantahala National Forest near Standing Indian Campground is this little jewel of a waterfall called Big Laurel Falls. A short .6 mile hike that follows the path of an old logging railroad, the trail meanders along a raging noisy Big Laurel Branch creek with lots of big boulders.        Although most books rate this trail as easy, I would say due to the root rutted trail it is more on the easy side of moderate. There are no steep grades on the hike only mild inclines and descents but the rough trail makes it a cautious hike in some areas making the half mile distance seem further then it is.    Once there however, you are rewarded with a beautiful falls and an overall enjoyable a hike with unusal trees and lots of rhodadendron along the way. One warning t...

Franklin, NC ~ Just Sold in Rainbow Springs ~ Nantahala Forest in Franklin, NC I get really excited when the new home owners are so ecstatic about their home purchase on the Nantahala River and the head of the Lake.  Its rare when a home is for sale in Rainbow Springs, Nantahala, NC.  People who purchase here do so in mind to keep it forever.  Who wouldn't fall in love with this area.  Bordered by the USFS and along Nantahala River where the locals boast of the fly fishing, tubing and boating.      Congratulations to Reed & Karen who are the lucky new owners of this awesome home and vacation spot.  May this home bring you joy for many years to come! Thanks, June Tassillo
