Smallmouth are one of the most exciting fish to chase on the fly. These often battle near the waters surface and frequently, above it. They are well muscled athletes with speed, power, and stamina. When you chose to take this trip it will be love at first strike.
Our float trips are done on the most beautiful streams of the southeast. The French Broad, Tuckasegee, Nolichucky, Pigeon, and the Holston River all hold great fish. Even though we target Smallmouth , you may be surprised. You could hook a Walleye, Striper, and White bass also.
On our smallmouth bass float trips, you are welcome to use a fly rod, conventional tackle, or a combination of both. If you plan on using conventional gear, we recommend a medium or medium-light rod that is about 7' in length. If you prefer to fly-fish, you will find that smallmouth will definitely take a fly. When fly-fishing for smallmouth, you should be able to accurately cast 50 feet.
Our guides are excellent instructors and a large part of their day involves teaching the finer points of fishing. Whether you are a beginner looking to land your first smallmouth, or a seasoned angler who wants to target the largest fish in the river, our guides will do whatever it takes to make your smallmouth bass fishing experience one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
