Guided Fly Fishing Trips

      Hiwassee River Guides is a Fly Fishing Guide Service based in Southeast Tennessee. We offer trips on all the major tail water rivers in East Tennessee, Southern Kentucky, and North Georgia. Being located on the Hiwassee River in the Southeastern part of the state gives us close proximity to all of these waters on a daily basis. Our trips are tailored to meet your needs weather you are a beginner fly fisher or a seasoned angler we can accommodate all experience levels. 


​     Trips are booked and operated on all rivers based of water release schedules. Because we operate on Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) tail waters we have to be flexible on an almost daily basis, as TVA can and will change water flows as needed. This is mainly due to two reasons, the first is water storage for flood control and the second is the demand for power supply from hydroelectric generation. Our guides are very experienced at reading water levels for all of our local waters and can adjust trip details as necessary based on changes in the flow schedules.


​     Depending on the water that we are fishing Hiwassee River Guides uses both traditional drift boats, outboard powered Jet boats, and rafts for our guided float trips. This decision is based on several factors which range from river selection, water release, and angler expectations and ability. Our guides have years of experience rowing drift boats in whitewater conditions as well as running river jets on smaller more remote waters as well. 


All guides employed by Hiwassee River Guides are Licensed and Certified with the following credentials :

​     United States Coast Guard, OUPV 6 Pack Captains License

​     AHA CPR / First Aid

​     Hiwassee River Guides is a Commercial Operation Permit Holder for the Hiwassee River in Reliance Tn. Issued by the United States Dept. of Agriculture, U.S. Forest        Service.

Bass on the Fly

     Yes, just like our striper trips we do chase bass on the fly. These trips take place on a variety of local streams and lakes. Smallmouth and Spotted Bass are the main target species. Our preference for bass fishing is a topwater popper bite but as in all things fishing, you do what you have to do.
