Do you prefer a lazy day floating down the
river, casting for big fish?  If so, a float trip
might be the right choice for you.  

Flowing out of the many Tennessee Valley
Authority dams, tailwaters are rich
environments supporting sizable populations
of larger trout.  Smoky Mountain Gillies offers
float trips on four East Tennessee rivers.  The
Clinch and
Holston Rivers are in the Knoxville Area, and the Watauga and South Holston rivers are in the
Johnson City/Bristol area.  

Float trips last between 8 and 10 hours, and include all gear, life jackets, and shuttle fees.  Casting
instruction is available if required and lunch is provided.  We can under certain circumstances
accommodate a third angler.  Spin-fishing is also permitted on some trips.

Tennessee.  Because a majority of the fishing is done from a drift boat, float trips may be
preferable for those clients who are concerned about wading in swiftly moving water.
