Jackson County – Trout Capitol!


This is our granddaughter Miriam and the trout she caught in the Tuckaseegee River. She went fishing with Pop (Phil) and her Dad and cousins. They had such a great time, and she really enjoyed eating her catch that night.

Commissioners Brian McMahan, Chairman, and Boyce Dietz both worked hard to have Jackson County designated the trout capitol of North Carolina. I hope to join Commissioners Dietz and McMahan as a Commissioner dedicated to protecting our natural resources and the right of all citizens to enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, tubing, biking and all the many opportunities outdoors in Jackson County.
