About the Watauga River
The Watauga River is a high-quality trout river boasting 2000-3000 fish per mile. This scenic river snakes 18 miles though beautiful rock cliffs and farm country, eventually dumping into Boone Lake. Brown trout and rainbow trout dominate the Watauga River, however various species of bass inhabit the lower stretches and into Boone Lake. Both wade fishing and float trips can be booked on the Watauga River, depending on the section of river fished, water release schedules, and species targeted.
