ADA Accessibility Notes

Sorry, our boat is not specifically ADA accessible. However we are happy to host wheelchair-bound clients as possible.

In business since 2006, Scenic City Fishing Charters is based in Chattanooga, Tenn. Owner/guide Capt. Richard Simms fishes for a variety of species, but specializes in catfish. Capt. Simms has a wildlife & fisheries management degree, he's former Wildlife Officer (game warden), an Outdoor Journalist and Book Author with 50 years experience as a "Tennessee River Rat." He is joined by FIVE other guides, all ready to share an up close & personal experience to Chattanooga's finest fishing.

Areas of Service and Expertise

Tennessee River (Nickajack & Chickamauga Lakes) ... often fishing in the shadow of the famous Tennessee Aquarium.

Capt. Simms says, "It's one thing to see a giant catfish in the Aquarium. It's an entirely different experience to see one on the end of your line!"

Eco-Friendly Notes

We "catch & release," or if you wish to keep a few fish for your dinner table, that's fine too.

Pet Friendly Notes

Sorry, pets not allowed
