Fishing is open year around with no season set. With lots of options to choose from there's always water to catch trout or smallmouth around our area.
Species You Fish for by Season:
Spring is best for trout (dry flies) and some early pre-spawn smallmouth bass action. (subsurface)
Summer is best for smallmouth bass. (topwater)
Fall is best for trout (nymphs and streamers) and late smallmouth bass. (subsurface)
Winter is best for trout. ( nymphs and streamers)
Region/Terrain where you fish:
East and Middle TN
Great Smoky Mountains National Park - Freestone streams with steep grades littered with large granite boulders. These trips are all wade fishing as streams are shallow and narrow with miles of pocket water loaded with wild trout which is easily accessible throughout the entire park.
Holston River, Clinch River and Caney Fork River - Cold clear tailwaters with heavy populations of Rainbow and Brown Trout with quality hatches offering great dry fly fishing at times and scenery to match. These trips are offered as float trips out of drift boats and rafts.
French Broad River, Holston River, Pigeon River, and Little River - These are some of the best Smallmouth Bass rivers in the country and just 30 minutes to 1 hour from our front door. With the exception of the little river most of our Smallmouth rivers are tailwaters which allows us to have a longer season to fish for them with very clear/shallow water with consistent water temps making the perfect combo for topwater action.
