[ARCHIVED] Noccalula Falls Park now Featuring Fly Fishing for Trout in Black Creek

fly fishing

 Beginning on November 15th you won’t have to travel to north Georgia or Tennessee to fly fish-you’ll be able to do it in Gadsden at Noccalula Falls Park in Black Creek. Over one-thousand 10”-14” rainbow trout were stocked in the creek below Noccalula Falls. The trout will take a few days to acclimate and find feeding zones and holding points. The City of Gadsden Parks and Recreation Department, along with partners from the Rainbow Fly Fishing Club, Greater Gadsden Area Tourism and State Representative B. Craig Lipscomb are working to make this project happen. 

Those wishing to cast for some trout must possess a valid State of Alabama Fishing License and a Trout Permit from the City of Gadsden Parks and Recreation Department. The Trout Permit can be purchased at the Noccalula Falls Campground office. Permits can be purchased for one day for $9 and a 3-consecutive day permit costs $11. The Trout Permits need to be clipped to your clothing any time you are fishing in Black Creek. Anyone fishing for any type of fish in Black Creek will have to have the Trout Permit and State License no matter what fish they are fishing for. The Campground office will sell plastic permit holders as well if you need one. Get the state license first because you will need to show that to get the Trout Permit. State licenses can be purchased online or at the Coosa Landing Bait Shop. Fishing will be allowed between dawn and dusk. 

From November 15th until January 31st there is only a catch-and-release option for the anglers. After February 1st anglers may keep up to 5 trout per day. Also, only fly rods are allowed, the hook shall be barbless, and only artificial bait can be used. An additional restocking will be done after Jan. 1st.
