Holston River Blueway
The Holston River Blueway stretches 52 miles from the Cherokee Dam to Knoxville, TN.
Four major river forks (Nork Fork, Middle Fork, South Fork, and Watauga Rivers) combine to make up the beautiful Holston River which spans 274 miles. It draws people from across the nation because of the excellent opportunity it provides for trout fishing in the South Holston River and smallmouth bass fishing further downstream. The flowing streams are also a popular destination for visitors to kayak, canoe, and paddleboard. Additionally, you can see a gorgeous countryside and even stop for a hike at House Mountain near Knoxville, TN.
