Is fishing allowed in the river???
Yes, bank fishing and in water trout fishing. You are required to have a fishing license. There is a store close by for bait and tackle. There are also trout farms close by. Ela/Bryson City is a wonderful place to be!

"We prefer river view"
"River view rooms are really old, the newer edition is a little better, not much but bigger. tiny bathrooms with no outlets."
"There are some 2nd floor rooms but no elevator!"
"Ask for one with the deck view of the river. Parking at your door."
"All very quiet rooms, lovely view of the river!"
