Headed to East Tennessee next weekend with my family and wondered if anyone can give me some guidance on fishing the Wautuaga? Access sites? etc.

RB, sounds like a good plan.

Some points in downstream order:

Wilbur Dam Put In 36.342222,-82.128437
Siam Rd (aka Steel Bridge Rd) 36.353171,-82.15422
Hunter Bridge Ramp36.367924,-82.16868
Riverside Park, Elizabethton 36.355642,-82.229293
Blevins Rd Ramp 36.333716,-82.270708
Highway 400 Ramp 36.369699,-82.297796

I suggest you pay a visit to Ben Walters at Eastern Fly Outfitters in Johnson City. In addition to fishing advice, Ben should have our map Item WLT01 on hand, but you should call ahead (423) 928-2007.

If the water is high for fishing the watagua check out the South Holston for a float trip just 30 min. Drive check out the south holston fly shop.for guides good dry fly fishing on high water.
