View Full Version : Guide for a three generation outing?

02-28-2011, 03:03 PM
I am trying to get my father and frail grandfather together for a float down some trout stream in Tennessee. I live in Knoxville and they live in Nashville. I was curious if any of you knew of a guide who would have a boat that could accommodate 3 rods. We could fish two rods also while one person sat, but there would still be four people in the boat (unless I just got in my kayak behind a three person drift boat). Anyone know of a good guide who could aid in a three generation trout slayin adventure? Also, what river do you think would be the best option? Thanks much yall.

You title/explanation is a bit confusing to me:). Do you mean water generation or family lineage? I assume the later. You best bet would be to split up with two-boats or to take a larger boat and stop off at various wading shoals.

Haha, family lineage was the intended meaning...

You may wanna try cal ralston at cr outfitters in norris (865-494-2305). I know cal personaly and his son chris. Chris is a very good guide and has a great personality. I dont know if their boat will hold three people but either way you would have a great trip. Give them a call or stop by to see them sometime, it's a realy cool shop. I'm not trying to take business from lro but if you are fishing the clinch and need something they are right there.

Go to Arkansas, bigger boats, better fishing.

I know that myself, Mike and Jeff all did 3 person trips occasionally. Is it ideal? No. However it can work, the biggest issue to overcome is rotation of which two are actually up fishing. If you all don't mind taking turns then it is a pretty easy solution. However if everyone must fish at the same time, I do not know of anyone in this area who can accommodate your needs.

Only problem with arkansas is that my grandfather is allergic to the smell...
