Fishing in Upper Shut-In Creek, Hot Springs, North Carolina

North of the town of Hot Springs, Upper Shut-In Creek is a small hatchery-supported stream (marginal at best) which is approximately 8 miles long and is about 12-15 foot in width.

Tip: Best place to fish is at Mill Pond where there is the biggest pool on the creek. This is about 6/10 of a mile south of the US 25/70 where there is a 8 to 10 foot waterfall.

Directions: Drive north from Hot Springs on the 25/70 toward Tennessee. Turn left at Shut In Road which is the second paved road on the left. The creek parallels the road.
