The Holston River starts in Virginia flowing southwest for 274 miles until it meets the French Broad here in Knoxville TN to form the Tennessee River. The 52 mile stretch of the Holston River from Cherokee Dam to the confluence is one of our main fisheries for both trout and smallmouth bass. This river is home to healthy populations of Rainbow and Brown a trout as well as Smallmouth bass. We float the Holston river in drift boats or rafts (depending on water levels) for optimal chances at fish and an overall quality experience. Peak season for trout is spring with Summer being our smallmouth season.
