Tailwaters Lodge on the South Holston
Tailwaters Lodge on the South Holston offers outstanding lodging as well as professional guide services. The South Holston River is deemed a premier trout fishing river that begins as a tailwater (water emanating from the bottom of the dam) of the South Holston Lake. The cold, deep waters emanating from the dam ensure good fishing conditions year-round. When the TVA is not generating, the river is ideal for wade fishing, seldom finding water over waist-deep. The river is approximately 80 yards wide and our river frontage abuts the TVA river frontage offering approximately one-mile of wade-able river to fish. During times of water generation, the river is ideal for float fishing with a guide. They know the river and will offer an exciting fishing experience. Biologists say that the river fish population exceeds 8,500 trout per mile. Brown trout, which are the majority of the trout, are wild-trout (no longer stocked), while rainbow trout are stocked each year, though very plentiful.
