The Blue Ridge Parkway extends 469 miles through Virginia and North Carolina. The North Carolina section runs from milepost 216 to milepost 469. In streams just off the parkway is some of the best trout fishing in the state. Anglers can fish from one end of the parkway to the other with either a north Carolina or Virginia fishing license. An NC Comprehensive Fishing License is recommended because of the difficulty in determining the dividing line between federal and state lands. Kibler describes fishing sites in the northern, central, and southern sections of the parkway in North Carolina.
