Tuckasegee River

Affectionately known as “The Tuck,” the Tuckasegee River flows almost the entire length of Jackson County.

Running through the oldest, most bio-diverse mountains in the temperate world, the Tuckasegee is the perfect place for fishing, paddling and kayaking. Its pristine headwaters are sourced deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains with the east fork originating in Panthertown Valley near Cashiers and flowing through several Jackson County towns and communities throughout its 50-mile path.
