We are avid fly fishermen and women who are dedicated to the conservation, preservation and restoration of coldwater fisheries. As a chapter, we also work to preserve and protect warmwater fisheries in our local area. We are proud to be a part of the national Trout Unlimited organization with over 150,000 members nationwide.

No doubt about a return trip to Watauga River Lodge. Our chapter has now taken two trips 2009, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 and ALL trips have been very successful. In fact, this trip has no problem in booking. Fall is a fantastic time in the Tennessee mountains and the trout (in their radiant color) are just as pretty as the leaves that are falling.
