Premium Outing: Watauga River Lodge, TN

  • Oct 26, 2014 · 7:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

October 26-30th, 2014 (Sunday-Thursday)*Capacity 10*

Our last WRL trip was in June of 2009. Based upon our past experience, it is definitely time to return. SRTU has negotiated a group trip opportunity with a stay at the Watauga River Lodge. With lots of fishing opportunities in the area, it could be that each day represents a different float trip for a different river. In 09, our guided fishing consisted of two days for trout and one day for smallmouth bass. Quite simply, this is guided fishing and lodging at its best.

Our guides: Brownie Liles, Ollie Smith, Tim Holcomb, Brad Barnes and Travis France have more experience fishing these waters than almost anyone else. You will have a great time and you WILL catch fish.

Below are highlights and details of our upcoming WRL outing.

Cost: Budget $1200. This price includes accommodations, meals and guide fees. The WRL is located on a trophy section of trout water. In 09, our cost was $858 pp.

Dates: October 26th-2014 (Sunday) arrival with guided fishing October 27th-29th, Monday-Wednesday. Departure date Thursday Oct 29th, we will be able to fish on the arrival and departure days on the trophy section of the Watauga.


From Columbia to the Watauga River Lodge is 221 miles via car pool.

What you are paying for?

3 days of guided fishing, breakfast, lunch, 4 nights of accommodations payable to Watauga River Lodge. For trout, we fish the Watauga, South Holston and the Holston River for smallmouth bass. We are fishing during the least pressured times on the rivers; this should be prime time for numbers and size of fish.

Other expected cost: Tips for the guides, License, etc

Equipment if needed can be provided by WRL.

    [masked] We have gone from 9 to 7 on numbers of participants for the trip. It would be great to pick up a few and have an even number of attendees. Those now attending Bob Peterson, Ted Kalutz, Bob Grimm, Mel Maurer, Ted Tsolovos, Rich Gale, and Keith Cloud. I have had a couple of inquiries since the Sept monthly, maybe a few more who will step into the water.

    [masked], Lots of interest in this one at the August monthly, maybe a participant to be added soon. I did receive on cancellation, therefore our number is 8. We have availability for what will be a great trip.

    [masked]: Two more additions (Ted Kalutz and Bob Grimm) are ready to catch a fish on our October trip. We now have 9 and since there is power in numbers, we have room for more. Any takers?

    As of April 24, our trip is shaping up nicely with deposits received from Greg Placone, Roy Tryon, Rich Gail, Bob Peterson and Keith Cloud. As far as capacity goes we are already halfway there. I look forward to our time together with an already great group of folks.
