Trophy Trout Fishing with CMDA

July 18, 2019 – July 21, 2019

I want to personally invite you to spend a long weekend with me this summer fly fishing here in Northeast Tennessee. We are blessed to have two of the finest trophy trout streams in the country—the Watauga and South Holston Rivers. I fish both these rivers regularly, and it’s not unusual to catch both brown and rainbow trout on the same trip.

We will be using Trophy Water Guide Services as our host for the event, and there will be a professional guide for every two anglers. They are my “go to” guides and will put us on some big fish!

Previous fly fishing experience is not required as our guides will provide instruction and will teach you everything you need to know to catch fish. We will be float fishing so we can cover a lot of water. This is a great opportunity for fun and fellowship, regardless of your level of experience! Information about Tennessee resident and non-resident fishing licenses can be found here.

I’m already looking forward to our time together and some great fishing. Space is extremely limited due to the number of guides available in the area, so don’t wait too long to register!

P.S. This is a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your child or spouse.
