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 newer and more experienced anglers alike to enjoy the excitement of a “fish on”. There are even sections of the rivers that are designated as "kids only" fishing. 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.
