Fishing Roaring Fork & Little Creek in Madison County North Carolina

Meadow Fork (which is located south of the town of Hot Springs) has two tributaries–both of which are hatchery-supported trout streams. Roaring Fork is a small creek that is only about 5 miles long and 6 to 8 feet wide. It is somewhat difficult to fish because of the brush so you have to get in it to fish. The other tributary is Little Creek which is about 2 miles long. The upper end of it has a fair population of small native rainbow trout.

Directions: From Hot Springs, take Highway 209 for about 7 to 8 miles to the Bluff Community (marked by a sign). Turn right at Meadow Fork Road at the sign that says “Max Patch 10 miles.” Both Roaring Fork Road (which is a dead end) is a right turn off Meadow Fork Road and Little Creek Road (which runs through to Max Patch) is a left. The creeks parallel each of the roads.
