The river is easier to fish in its upper part and can be more difficult to fish in its lower part – the gorge. 

Nestled in the heart of Linville is The Eseeola Lodge. Steeped in tradition – this lodge is a mainstay for generations of guests who have fallen in love with this unique mountain resort and the adventures that await them in the surrounding area.
