Fish public or private waters
Our “ private Waters” offer guaranteed solitude and the chance to catch
trophy-sized trout (up to 28 inches) in a pristine mountain stream environment. The popular
North Toe River is just minutes away, offering catch-and-release/delayed-harvest regulations
and healthy fish populations from October through June.
If that isn't enough, there are hundreds of miles of coldwater streams within a 30-minute drive
of our shop: the French Broad, the South Holston, the Watauga, the Nolichucky, and the South
Toe River are all just a short drive from the shop; and miles of remote brook trout streams are
located minutes from Historic Downtown Spruce Pine.
Fishing our private waters offers a true trophy fishing experience. Anglers can expect to find fish sipping midges in the slicks, gorging on nymphs in the riffles, and chasing bait fish in long deep holes.
If you have always dreamed of catching a large trout in a unique mountain setting our trophy waters are for you.
These fisheries are not for the faint of heart. Imagine 25 plus inch fish jumping and running through long, still waters…there’s no better place to be. Trout fishing the way it’s supposed to be! Make your reservation today. firstname.lastname@example.org
Nolichucky River Fishing
From its origin in North Carolina at the confluence of the Toe and Cane Rivers, the "Chucky",
as the locals call it, comes out of the rugged mountains of Western North Carolina into the quiet
town of Erwin, Tennessee. Our trips begin from here and work their way down river towards Limestone,
Tennessee. From the town of Erwin, the river changes character significantly.
The Chucky goes from being a fast flowing narrow gorge to wider softer flowing water and continues
towards the French Broad River. The Nolichucky offers anglers the ability to encounter trophy
smallmouth, large trout and the occasional musky. Seasons, weather and water levels dictate which
section of the river your trip will be on. The Nolichucky contends with any smallmouth bass river
for its mountain views and excellent fishing.
Fly fishing is a great sport for all ages
Whether you're a beginner looking to catch your first trout on a fly or an expert in search of
challenging wild browns, River’s Edge Outfitters has the expertise to make your trip a success.

our fisherman catching 50 plus smallies per trip!
