Great Smoky Mountains National Park Trips

Trout fishing trips in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers the opportunity to catch native Appalachian Brook Trout, browns, and wild rainbows, all while experiencing the beautiful streams and the serenity of the Great Smoky Mountains. Your trout fishing trip can either be done with spin or fly-fishing gear from the bank or wading in the streams and waterways.  Come join the fishing experience so many families enjoy year after year. Guided trout fishing trips are available year round.

  • March thru May offers good size trout as well as larger numbers of fish, requires fishing from the bank or the use of waders. From Mid May thru Mid September most stream fishing usually only requires a pair of shorts and some old sneakers or wading shoes that are not slick soled, to help prevent sliding around on the rocks.
  • Winter trout fishing, October through February, is great for anglers wishing to fish in a relaxed environment.  There are fewer anglers in the area and the trout quality is excellent.  Requires warmer clothing, we can provide you with the waders.

These trips are located within 30- 60 minutes of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville or Knoxville, Tennessee providing excellent fishing for both numbers and trophy fish.
