NC Bucket List, Part 1



Here is my bucket list of NC creeks in counties in and west of Buncombe. There are many, many more in this area that I intend to fish, but they would be on most people's list of creeks "too small to bother with", so they shall remain nameless. I will start with Cherokee County and move east. Creeks in bold print are named in NCWRC regulations. Of the 30 creeks listed, only 6 do not involve a hike, or at least a high clearance FWD vehicle.
