Whether you want to experience East Tennessee Fly Fishing or Western NC Fly Fishing, there are several rivers where you can practice the perfect cast while pursuing the fish of a lifetime! The Holston River and the Watauga River are Tennessee Fly Fishing at its best! The Holston River flows from southwest Virginia into Tennessee and is great for catching Smallmouth Bass, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout. The Watauga River is popular for fly fishing as well as angling with fishing reels, and is home to Rainbow and Brown Trout and Striped Bass

East Tennessee Fly Fishing can personalize classes for all skill levels. I have instructed large corporate groups and can coordinate a great initiative weekend for your firm. Private lodges with meeting facilities on the river can be arranged in a package. Large and small groups well as well as individuals, can be accommodated.

TENNESSEE FLY FISHING: Winter Fishing on the Elk River, TN

East Tennessee, a place well-known for mountains, moonshine, and meth labs. Truth be known, we have some of the finest trout fisheries in the United States. The Great Smoky Mountains provide the foundation for East Tennessee fly fishing. Cold water streams scattered throughout the National Park provide opportunities to catch beautiful wild trout in some of the most pristine settings. While large tailwaters like the Clinch snake through the hills and valleys and provide anglers with the chance to tangle with trophy trout. After months of compiling our best GoPro footage, this is the best of the best East Tennessee has to offer. Enjoy!
