Clinch River

Quick Info

Many experienced anglers consider the Clinch tail waters that flows 13 miles from Norris Dam, to be the finest trout fisheries in the Country. The clear, shallow, slow-moving Clinch demands a stealthy approach, delicate presentation, small flies and draf-free drifts. It is very much like fishing a spring creek, but it is over 75 years wide. To consistently catch its wild, wary rainbow and brown trout requires concentration, careful execution and patience. There are many access points to enjoy fishing and boating activities. Guide services and maps available.

Directions: From Interstate 75 take exit 122 and go east on Highway 61. Turn left onto Freeway 441 and the river and its access points are located on the left.
