Tuckasegee River: NC 107 Bridge at the Community of Tuckasegee to Bryson City Professional Review and Guide
"The Tuckasegee begins in the Nantahala National Forest, at the confluence of the East Fork and the West Fork of the Tuckasegee. From there it meanders through a valley with a highway following along its entire length, except for about 4 miles. It flows through Bryson City before entering Lake Fontana. The river primarily runs over gravel bars until it reaches the gorge below Dillsboro, where it begins to drop over ledges. After leaving the gorge it resumes its original character, with a few ledges and shoals interspersed."
