Watauga River fishing is one of the most sought-after fly fishing destinations in the United States. The Watauga River is the perfect place for those passionate about fly fishing to chase after trout. The scenery alone is enough to take your breath away. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains it provides the perfect backdrop for the crystal clear water. Add in the challenge of landing a trophy trout, and you have the perfect recipe for an unforgettable fishing experience.

The Watauga River can be run by boat at all times, unlike the South Holston River
