Walk/Wade Trips

 
Wilderness Walk (March-October)
1 person - $275    2 person - $350 
       Our wilderness walk trips take place on the numerous trout streams of Western North Carolina.  These streams hold wild trout populations of brown, rainbow, and brook trout and are taken by small stream-fishing techniques.

Tailwaters Walk/Wade Trip (Year Round)
1 person - $350    2 person - $400
 
Wade fishing on the tailwaters can prove to be very exciting.  Selective browns and rainbows can be taken on dry flies and nymphs.  The fluctuation of water in the tailrace can bring prolific hatches which are key to finding big fish rising.  Our guides are often seen on these waters pursuing these great fish.

Float Trips
1 person - $375    2 person - $425
 
Trophy Section of Watauga (Year Round)
           This is our most popular trip offering 5 miles of excellent tailwater trout fishing and beautiful scenery.  This is a combination float and wade trip giving anglers many different and challenging fishing situations for quality brown and rainbow trout.

Upper Watauga or South Holston (Year Round)
These are our big water float trips offering anglers the opportunity to try streamer fishing for trophy browns and rainbows.  These trips cover 12 miles of outstanding fishing waters.  Hatches are abundant year round and offer excellent dry fly fishing.

Nolichucky (Year Round)
Our day float of 10 miles on the Nolichucky for smallmouth bass takes place just above the gorge or below.  Fly and light-tackle fishing down this remote stretch of the Nolichucky is a favorite among our guides.

Overnight Trips

Nolichucky Overnight (April-September)
$550 per person 
Wade fishing on the tailwaters can prove to be very exciting.  Selective browns and rainbows can be taken on dry flies and nymphs.  The fluctuation of water in the tailrace can bring prolific hatches which are key to finding big fish rising.  Our guides are often seen on these waters pursuing these great fish.
