Headwaters Outfitters - Into the Wild

Headwaters Outfitters is your source for river style outdoor family fun. We offer canoeing and kayaking river trips, fly fishing, tubing, destination paddling adventures, and new for 2013, we have partnered with Z-Z-Zip!, and now offer combination Paddling and Zip Line Trips. Enjoy a peaceful trip down the French Broad River, with a mid-point stop at Z-Z-Zip’s ACCT certified Zip Line and Low ROPES course.

Our paddling trips can last from three hours up to a multi-day river/camping trip, or you can cool off with a lazy float down the beautiful French Broad River on our popular tubing trip. Most of our trips are self-guided, but we do offer seasonal special guided trips.

Our premier fly fishing trips are with licensed fly fishing guides on the rivers of western North Carolina. Our guides will lead you to these rivers for trout, teach you to cast, and help you choose flies that will increase your success on the water.

Headwaters Outfitters stocks the best selection of canoes, kayaks and fly fishing gear to outfit you for your next big adventure. We provide personalized service and superior product knowledge.

We are conveniently located just outside Brevard, NC, between Asheville and Highlands. Regardless of where you are coming from, Headwaters Outfitters has a lot to offer for those looking for mountain adventures. Call us at 828-877-3106 for more information, or help booking your adventure!
