Float Fishing trips for Trout

Fly Fishing trips for Trout are on the Watauga and South Holston rivers. These two rivers are dam controlled by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and bottom fed off of two local lakes. Dam controlled rivers, also known as tailwaters are very fertile. These tailwaters offer prolific, year-round hatches. Both rivers offer some outstanding winter fishing for trophy trout. The Southern Appalachian mountains also offer some great smallmouth bass fishing. The New River, South Toe River and Nolichucky River can be fished from a drift boat during the warmer months. I offer both fly and spin fishing trips for smallmouth bass. Smallmouth trips are available from May through October.

*Booking fee of $75 is required to reserve your date. The booking fee will be deducted from the balance due at the end of the trip. If trip must be cancelled due to inclement weather or water conditions,your trip will be rescheduled or booking fee refunded. A gratuity is a customary way to let your guide know he has performed well.

Wading Trips

We also offer personalized wading trips on both small streams and the tailwaters. I pride myself on my knowledge of small streams in TN, NC and VA. Small stream fishing is a great challenge. While fishing the area creeks one will be rewarded with both beautiful scenery and wild trout. I specialize in trips high into the back country,searching for Appalachian brook trout.
