Cherokee Trails Campground
South Holston Lake
The South Fork Holston River is well known for its abundant
trout fishing. Both browns and rainbows are plentiful. The
appeal of this river is the potential for the big ones... 10lb
brown trout are not unusual, and in this stretch of river anglers
have netted browns that tipped the scales at 20lbs! If you
forget anything check out the South Holston Fly shop.
The generation schedule of the Holston Dam contributes to
your fishing day. If the dam is generating the water is fast and
the fish are often more aggressive and a heck of a lot of fun to
reel in off a boat. When they are not there is great fishing
along the grasses that run the length of the river. Whatever
your strategy, you're sure to have success in this river. To
check the schedule go to TVA.gov.
Within 3 miles of the campground you can find excellent trout fishing in the South Fork of
the Holston River!
This huge lake (over 7500 acres!) is a clean beautiful
swimming lake that is also full of fish! Although
populations of small and largemouth bass are not as
common there are many rainbow trout which keeps the
fish biting! If your not using a lure there is a nice forage
base of shad, bluegill and other minnows to keep your
bait bucket full!
