Great Smoky Mountains National Park Trips
Come enjoy guided Fly Fishing trips in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and experience catching native Appalachian Brook Trout, browns, and wild rainbows. All while experiencing the beautiful streams and the serenity of the Great Smoky Mountains. With our Brook trout trips being one of our most popular trips, as they are the only species native to this area. Our trips inside the National Park are catch & release only, as we would like to preserve the great fishing in the park for others to enjoy as well. However; if you do prefer to keep your catch. We offer other trips outside the park that also provide great fishing and beautiful scenery as well.

We offer Spin or Fly-Fishing trips that will accommodate almost everyone.   From the bank or wading come experience some of the best stream and river fishing for Trout and Smallmouth that so many adults, as well as children enjoy year after year.  While the Trophy Trout or Big Smallmouth anglers come to fish some of the best waters in East Tennessee.

Fish for trout year round.  March thru May offers good size trout as well as larger numbers of fish, requires fishing from the bank or the use of waders. From Mid May thru Mid September most stream fishing usually only requires a pair of shorts and some old sneakers or wading shoes that are not slick soled, to help prevent sliding around on the rocks.

Winter trought fishing, October through February, is great for anglers wishing to fish in a relaxed environment.  There are fewer anglers in the area and the trout quality is excellent.  Requires warmer clothing, we can provide you with the waders.

Clients will need to purchase their appropriate permit or license, available for purchase upon your arrival at one of our local agents.  We furnish all the rods, reels , bait, tackle and waders as needed, unless you prefer to bring your own. Other items you may want to bring are insect repellant, cap, sunglasses, snacks, drinks, camera, and raingear, just in case.

Stream fishing or river fishing, the fun is just begining.
