East Tennessee has some of the best trout water anywhere in the country. From our base in Townsend, we have quick access to the streams of the Smoky Mountains as well as large tailwater rivers to float. We offer guided wade fishing in the streams and float trips on the tailwaters.
We limit ourselves to a maximum of two anglers per guide so each angler receives a maximum of attention.
Wade Trips in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
A haven for coldwater species like trout, the Smokies offer more than 700 miles of wild trout streams. These beautiful streams provide wade fishing for colorful fish on a grand scale. While most fish in the Smokies are less than a foot long, they are a challenge to hook and are scrappy fighters.
Many anglers rate the Smokies as their favorite place to cast a fly. The Smokies are one of the last large wild trout fisheries in the eastern USA. A day of fishing the mountain streams is more physical than some anglers expect. We’ll take you to water that best suits your capabilities. We mainly guide along roadside streams but can hike in to one of many locations if it suits you.
1/2 Day Trips $225 for 1 angler or $240 for 2 anglers
Full Day Trips $300 for 1 angler or $325 for 2 anglers
Drift Boat Trips
Our guided floats are a relaxing way to get on the water and fish for larger trout. We float the Clinch, Holston, and Tuckaseegee Rivers plus Calderwood Lake for trout. We also float the Holston, Pigeon, and Little Rivers for smallmouth bass and panfish. These waters are 30 – 90 minutes from our base in Townsend and are all full day trips.
