Our float trips operate in Eastern Tennessee on the tailwaters of the Watauga and South Holston Rivers, These trips focus on the most productive methods for Trout fishing. We also offer floats on a few smallmouth streams including the Nolichucky. Our walk wade trips typically revolve locally, but wading on the tailwaters is possible with the correct generations.

Local Trout Streams
The Boone area is blessed with having hundreds of miles of trout streams within driving distance. We have plenty of public stocked fisheries right here out the back door, and we have lots of off the beaten path unpressured streams with wild native trout as well. Whether it's just cutting your teeth on a half day on the stocked streams, or blazing a trail miles into the wilderness systems of Pisgah - HCGS can offer a professional experience on the water.
These trips are walking and wading excursions based within Watauga and Avery County, on our Delayed Harvest and Hatchery Supported Streams.
