If you have never fished for river smallmouth bass, you are definitely missing out. To put it in simple terms, it's fishing for largemouth on a trout stream - but smallmouth fight harder than either. Your local guides provide the premier smallmouth fishing in the Blue Ridge Mountains area. They live to flyfish for smallmouth but equally welcome fishing with conventional tackle, and sometimes prefer it, depending on conditions. All fishing is catch and release with barbless hooks.
The New is well known for its incredible smallmouth fishing, from its headwaters in North Carolina to its destination in West Virginia. Float fishing with private access is available in both North Carolina and Virginia. It's a beautiful river, recognized as one of the country's "National Wild and Scenic Rivers." You're to sure to be inspired by this river's beauty and incredible fishing.
The "Chucky" in Tennessee and North Carolina has proven to be a fantastic fishery, time and time again. During a day's float, you will have opportunities at smallmouth bass, spotted bass, rock bass and muskellunge. The Nolichucky is an awesome river for those who like to add the thrill of light rapids to their fishing adventure.
This is a mega smallmouth fishery with plenty of fish for everyone! The section of the Holston known for awesome bronzebacks is downstream of its famous trout water, but still regulated. This ensures a healthy smally population season after season with regulated flows and cold water temperatures all summer long. The Holston provides more consistent smallmouth fishing than any other your guides have found in the southeast.
The "Swine" River is trophy smallmouth water. The name "Swine" is made up - to protect this secret location and describes the absolute HOGS that your guides catch every spring. If it's quality and not quantity you seek, then this is the place. There's a pig waiting just for you!

The goal of your guides is to exceed guest expectations by providing quality customized fishing adventures. All guides are local and have years of guiding experience, so they provide an extensive knowledge base about the region and the fishing opportunities in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Your guides will work with you to create a great experience because they understand that fishing means different things to different people. They respect recreational anglers who just want to have a little piece of stream to themselves...and anglers who are possessed, like BIG fish, and are insatiable in their fishing pursuits.
Whatever your passion, you'll like fishing with them. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, they are prepared to make your outing the fishing trip of your dreams.

And, you will need to communicate directly with your guide as soon as possible after your fishing date has been confirmed (when you receive your E-Ticket). The guide's phone number will be provided to you on your E-Ticket.
