trip description for Tailwater Trout in Johnson City

If you've been looking for a truly exceptional day on the water, go no further. Ellis is a fly-fishing expert, and we would argue that there are few better guides east of the Mississippi. He offers trips tailored to the local waters around Johnson City, Tennessee, and his goal is to tie, fish, and guide in ways that are perfectly suited to the rivers that you'll be fishing. Trout are fishable all year long, but other freshwater species are more seasonal. Just ask Ellis and he can tell what will be biting when you want to fish. The options are endless, whether that's casting for Musky in the fall and winter, streamer fishing for Trout year round, hunting rising fish on dry flies, going after Stripers on both fly and conventional tackle, mousing for big Browns, hitting Carp on the lake, or enticing big Smallies. With Ellis as your guide, you'll be able to try your hand at all of these kinds of fishing, and aim for a wide range of freshwater species. He's fished this water obsessively, putting in long days in every season and every kind of weather, and he knows the best spots like the back of his hand. Ellis will provide everything you need for an amazing day on the water. He ties all the flies used on his trips, and his care and expertise are evident as soon as you step onto the boat. All you need to bring is a good attitude, proper clothing, sun protection, and a pair of polarized sunglasses. You'll also need a Tennessee fishing license!

trip description for Spider Rig Fishing - 4 hour in Harrison

This very personalized trip (2 person limit) will introduce you to the technique of spider-rig fishing for crappie which is especially effective during their pre-spawn and post-spawn migrations. Basically, you will be manning 6-8 poles with double jigs from the bow as the boat is slowly moved forward. This is a particularly efficient way to target suspended crappie along creek channel flats studded with brush and stumps. This shorter trip gets you back to the dock early enough to enjoy some of the other sights around Chattanooga. Read More
