The South Holston and Watauga tailwaters outside of Elizabethton and Johnson City Tennessee offer anglers some of the best fishing the Southeast has to offer. With a long season of dynamic bug life and resident trout these streams can be terrific fishing almost year round! HCGS has guided these well known waters since 2005 and strives to offer that intimate and elusive knowledge to all skill sets. With increasing pressure and privatization it truly takes some dedicated know-how and on the stream solutions that our guides practice day in and day out. If you've fished the area before and always wanted to see the guides' perspective or just want to try out a full day float - these streams are the best we have!
Our guides are on the water full time whether working or researching - and with a year round fishery we can get you and your group out on the water any time of year!
High Country Guide Service requires a non-refundable, 50% deposit to book a trip. The full value is non-refundable within 7 days of scheduled trip date. We fish rain or shine, unless the weather is deemed unsafe by the guide. In the event of dangerous weather we will reschedule for a future date.
