Float Down The Watauga River With Us

The Kingfisher Skiff In Action

Join Brownie, Stokes, and friends on a float down the Watauga River, our home water in East Tennessee. From the put in we fish our way down to the Watauga River Lodge and break for lunch. We stop at the Caddis Riffle to hop out and drift a few nymphs, then we're on the way to the takeout.
