About the Rivers

Experienced and beginning anglers alike can choose from exciting float fishing trips or wade trips on the Watauga River and South Holston River. All of our trips are led by experienced guides who know the best places to fly fish for rainbow and brown trout. Read on to find out more about these famous rivers and learn what you can expect when you set out on one of our guided float fishing trips or wade fishing trips.

Watauga River: Though it’s almost certainly Native American in origin, the meaning of the Watauga River’s name remains a mystery. Today, the Watauga is a hotspot for catching rainbow and brown trout.

South Holston River: The South Holston River was named after early pioneer and settler Stephen Holstein, who made his home there in 1746. This river is known for its abundance of rainbow and brown trout. As such, fly fishers have made it their go-to spot for all-day angling trips.
