About Tennessee Valley Anglers


Tennessee Valley Anglers is a professional guide service based in East Tennessee. Our number one goal is facilitating the best fishing experience possible. Trip planning is absolutely key for meeting your expectations and we encourage you to join in on the discussion when setting up the details with your guide. Whether you are brand new to the sport or a seasoned, fish catching machine, we can plan and execute an awesome experience. East Tennessee is an incredibly beautiful and 
diverse place for fishing and we take great pride in guiding a wide variety of water. The Clinch, Holston, and French Broad Rivers as well as Ft. Loudon and Melton Hill lakes are our primary waters of focus with our main fly fishing targets being Trout, Smallmouth Bass, and Striper. However, on any given day, there are often many other hard fighting fish that we will encounter worth throwing a fly at; Carp, Gar, Skip-Jack Herring, Mooneye, Drum, and White Bass are regularly encountered on both cold and warm water trips.

Fly-fishing is without a doubt our top focus for much of the season but we are by no means “fly-fishing purist”. Conventional tackle trips make up a considerable part of the service using both lures and bait, which open up many doors to targeting leviathan Striper and Catfish. To help do our part to preserve our East Tennessee fisheries, we use circle and octopus style hooks which greatly reduce the risk of killing a fish. In addition, Under no circumstances will we ever fish with BAIT for Trout, because bait kills trout!
The bottom line is that we love to fish and we love to share our experience. If you have questions that you cannot find an answer to on the website or if you have an inquiry about a particular trip, please Contact Us and we will get the conversation started.
