Have your Trout and eat it too… Haywood County Fishing

Groom's Cake ...just simply delicious

A groom’s cake in a wedding usually reflects the man himself, his ambitions, dreams, or hobbies.  In this groom’s cake we went trout fishing in Haywood County’s cool mountain streams.   The cake itself was made from spelt flour, covered in scratch-made chocolate fondant and decorated with gum paste floral and trout.   The cake design is  finished with fondant candy rocks and bubble sugar for water.  Everything was edible and just simply delicious.

If you want to go fishing, Haywood County is the place to be, especially if you love to fly fish for trout.  Here, all the water in Haywood County originates within our boundaries.  Waynesville’s watershed is located southwest of the town  in an area called Allens Creek and covers 8,400 acres.  Tributary streams within the watershed flow into the Waynesville Reservoir, a 50 acre man-made lake created by a dam on Allens Creek.

Crisp and clear mountain trout waters, with views of waterfalls and the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains as your background… what could be better?  Can you think of a better mancation?

Brook, brown and rainbow trout are the dominant species of freshwater trout in North Carolina. These trout require cold, clean water and are therefore generally restricted to mountain streams and lakes. Those mountain waters that support trout and are open to public fishing are designated as “Public Mountain Trout Waters” by the Wildlife Resources Commission and are managed for public trout fishing.

There are approximately 1,100 miles of Hatchery Supported Trout Waters in North Carolina. In hatchery supported waters there is no size limit or bait restriction, and the creel limit is seven trout per day. Hatchery Supported Trout Waters are marked with green-and white signs that are posted conspicuously along the watercourses.
