South Holston, Watauga, and Catwba Tailrace Float Trip:

 The South Holston and Watauga Rivers are two of the most popular tailraces in the Southeastern US. As one of Trout Unlimited’s top 100 Blue Ribbon streams, the South Holston is well know for incredible Sulfur and Blue Wing hatches. We float both of the river systems 365 days a year and are both superb dry fly fisheries.
The Catawba River Tailrace below Lake James is fast becoming known for it’s brown trout fishery. This float takes anglers through both the general water section of the Catawba and then through the trophy water section.

1 Person - $425, 2 People - $225 per Person

Smallmouth/Muskie Float Trip:

The Nolichucky and French Broad Rivers are the primary smallie river systems here in Western NC. The Nolichucky begins as the North Toe River and changes names at the confluence of Cane River. This fishery is considered by many as the premier smallmouth bass fishery in the Southeast. The Nolichucky offers the angler the ability to encounter trophy smallmouth bass, large trout, and the occasional musky. The French Broad is a much different river system than the Nolichucky. Flowing north out of Asheville, NC, the French Broad is best known for the vast number of smallies. 

1 Person - $400, 2 People $200 per Person
