Trip Info

The Tellico River is renowned for its brook, brown and rainbow trout fishing. The river rises in the Uniconi Range of mountains and stretches through Tellico Plains.

The Tellico River is our home water. It is the state’s largest freestone trout stream, meaning that it’s free flow, not dam controlled. It’s a wade fishery only due to it’s size and average water depths. The Tellico remains one of Tennessee’s top trout streams and is a very popular tourist location. Many postcards feature the streams tumbling mountain waters as the main theme and tourists continue to travel from miles around for a photo of its main scenic attraction, Bald River Falls.

Join us for a full day of fishing for trout and immersing yourself in the beautiful nature and wildlife surrounding this amazing river. This trip is perfect for the whole family. We will provide all necessary equipment. Just bring your camera for a postcard-worthy photo!

Let Tellico Angler help you plan your next memorable experience.

Steve Bryson is the owner and operator of Tellico Angler, a professional outfitter and guide service based in Tellico Plains, TN. We are located in the heart of some of the best fishing that East TN has to offer. We specialize in guiding fishermen for trout, smallmouth and striper. We are a fly fishing guide service, but we realize that not everyone is interested in this type of fishing. Therefore, we also offer all of our trip options to those that prefer using spin fishing equipment. Either way is fine with us, we just want you to enjoy your special day on the water.
