News & Updates

Hank, formerly a guide over in Bryson City, NC, has lots of good insights on fishing the Tuckaseegee, an impressive and productive river that's a short 2.5 hour drive from Knoxville. Come have a beer, chat, and learn some neat facts and tips to fish the Tuck. Starts at 5pm, and will run until around 7pm.


Rain fell around Knoxville and parts of East Tennessee this morning, and that’s helping bring water temperatures down in the mountains, though we still need more water to get good flows. However, there is plenty of cold water running through the Clinch, and we look on track to have fishable water in the Holston by November if the weather holds. Holstonbow

Fishing is starting to heat up around here as the weather cools. We’re getting some generous flow times for the Clinch in the morning, giving you the opportunity to fish the upper end until lunch and the lower end well into the afternoon. The Holston is still to warm for trout and likely will be for the next month, but you can still sight-fish to smallmouth and carp while we have these warm, sunny days on the calendar. The Smokies are still flowing low, but we’re seeing more chances for rain and cooler temperatures on the horizon. 

Happy October! Fall is a little late, but we finally have cooler temperatures and even a little rain in the forecast to relieve the mountains. We’re also seeing changes in the flows on the tailwaters, so lots of opportunities to wade and float where there is still plenty of water. IMG 0808
