Earthshine Retreats

Fall Fly Fishing Retreat with Headwaters Outfitters
November 17th-20th, 2022
2 days guided fly-fishing/ 3 nights at the lodge

The cool temperatures of fall in Western North Carolina make it the perfect time for exploring the local streams and rivers. This all-inclusive, fully guided trip is offered in collaboration with our friends at Headwaters Outfitters. Their world-class guides will lead you on two full days of fishing and instruction and you will come back to beautiful views, crackling fires, and home-cooked meals at the lodge.

World-Class Guides

Located just a few miles from Earthshine Lodge on the headwaters of the French Broad River, Headwaters Outfitters have been the area’s go-to experts for local fishing and paddling for over 25 years. The highly skilled guides at Headwaters have experience fishing all over the United States and South America and we are lucky they call Western North Carolina home. They care about educating anglers (whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced angler), finding new and exciting experiences on the water, and most importantly, giving their guests great memories!

Your two fully-guided fishing days will include a full day private water wade trip and a full day float trip.

Room with a view

After a full day of exploring the local rivers, come back to your warm and cozy room at Earthshine Lodge. Each room has a queen bed, loft with two twin beds, private balcony, and bathroom. The lodge is reserved for the fly-fishing retreat so feel free to explore Earthshine’s hiking trails, make use of the fire pits, or find a spot by one of our indoor fire places to warm up after a day on the water. Single and double occupancy rates are available (you must be traveling with the other guest for double occupancy). 

Want to bring a non-fishing significant other or friend? They are more than welcome and can enjoy a restful getaway with beautiful views while you are out exploring with your guide. 

Home Cooked Meals Included

Our chef serves delicious and healthy meals from the kitchen in the main common area of the lodge. We call it healthy southern lodge food, but we think you’ll call it delicious. Our chef plans menus to appeal to all so let us know if you have any food allergies. A hot breakfast and dinner will be served at the lodge throughout your stay and we will pack a hearty boxed lunch for the days that you are on the river.
