Fishing in Mill Creek, Madison County, North Carolina
There are two tributaries of Shelton Laurel. Mill Creek, which enters at the Carmen Church of God, is about 2 to 3 miles long. It runs from Hot Springs up to the Pisgah National Forest Boundary. This is hatchery-supported with trout fingerlings. The other tributary, Big Creek, is 5 to 6 miles long and ranges from 12 to 15 feet wide. It has a fair population of native rainbow trout.
Directions: From Marshall, take 25/70 North to Highway 208. Highway 208 to Belva and turn right on Highway 212. Mill Creek is a left turn almost to the Tennessee border. The left turn to Big Creek is before the Mill Creek turn.
