East Tennessee offers great opportunities for year round guided fly fishing. The cold water that is released from high mountain dams creates prime trout habitat throughout the year. It's perfect water to enjoy fly fishing from the comfort of a drift boat. Drift boat fly fishing is truly an experience like no other. Our Mckenzie style drift boats provide a comfortable and stealthy platform to navigate the rivers and streams of East TN and the rest of the southeast.
We also enjoy visiting the nearby Appalachian Mountains and the famed Great Smoky Mountains National Park in search of wild trout. Casting flies while wading is one of life's great pleasure. These trips are often full of beautiful wild rainbow trout, brown trout and the southern Appalachian brook trout. Higher elevation freestone streams are best from Spring - October.
Our rivers are all located near a variety of family style activities and our trips can fit right into a family vacation to east Tennessee. We feature angling destinations within a short drive of Knoxville TN, Nashville TN, Chattanooga TN, and many other southeastern locales.
