Welcome to Troutfishers Guide Service and thanks for stopping by. Picture yourself standing mid-stream watching a fish softly sipping from the surface. Your mind is only on the fish as you gently present the fly to the surface as if it just emerged from the stream. You see the fish swirl and begin its stalk. As the fish and fly converge, you see the fish open its mouth and ever-so-gently take your fly. Raising your rod, you set the hook and the fight is on. You finally land him and gently release him to be caught another day. We can make this become a reality for you because we supply everything you need, waders, boots, fly rods and reels, and flies. All you need is a proper fishing license, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, earthtone clothing and a rain jacket.
We are a professional, licensed and insured fishing guide service based in Kingsport, Tennessee, and we fish in East Tennessee, Western North Carolina, and Southwestern Virginia. Here in the mountains of East Tennessee are some of the best trout streams and rivers you will ever fly fish. The 14-mile long South Holston tailwater, located just east of Bristol, Tenn., is one of the finest fisheries in the southeast. The Watauga tailwater flows through the city of Elizabethton and the town of Watauga, the river's namesake. The Watauga has many different and sometimes challenging personalities along its 23-mile length. The Holston River below Kingsport, running through Church Hill, Mount Carmel, Surgoinsville and Rogersville before flowing into Cherokee Lake, is home to some of the best smallmouth fishing in the southeast.
The Lower Holston below Cherokee Dam near Jefferson City flows through the Tampico and Indian Cave areas with the trout fishing ending at Nances Ferry.
The mountain streams we fish are located in communities like Mountain City, Hampton, Roan Mountain, Shady Valley, Cosby, Gatlinburg, Townsend, Cades Cove, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville. You will be able to experience breathtaking views and beautiful, wild fish.
