From wading in small mountain streams to floating large open tailwaters there is no better place to gather a storehouse of special moments than the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the surrounding area. From a youngster's first trout, to pristine mountain streams and vistas, your experiences here will kindle a desire to return for years to come. The mountain trout in the National Park waters are stream-born, wild and very determined to survive! Prohibiting bait and treble hooks levels the playing field and makes each catch a source of pride and sense of accomplishment.
In addition, Gatlinburg offers permits for “city waters” that offer opportunities to catch trout the city stocks each week. This is a great chance for young and old alike to enjoy the excitement of a “fish on”. There are even “kids only” areas designated. Drop by the shop and we will point you in the right direction and provide all you need for a great day on the water.
