    Tampico access is private. I'm sure we can all list a host of other private accesses on the Holston and if you want to recommend them to people, fine, but for you to make the statement that "all of the above is incorrect" is incredibly ridiculous. Tone down your inane commentary, please.
    Wrong on Tampico. The true boat take out is private, however, just downstream of there is a place which is inside the hwy. right of way (which is public) and the high water mark. Making it perfectly legal to take a canoe out there. And about a mans family, having fished people out of all of these rivers I can personally attest to looking out for others to keep them out of harms way.

    "Inane commentary", ahh never mind it is not worth my time to respond to that drivel.

    Thank you, and I am glad to see someone say something about that. Yes they do allow public use, but it is always courteous to ask permission just to keep an even keel.

    I would like to welcome our new member to the board
    It is a long float to whereever you are gonna take out at. Anybody that doesn't think so can get behind the oars and row while I fish. I'll even bring lunch

    I am hungry, and like to row. It comes at a price however.

    if confluence of public right-of-ways, like public roads and TVA's, constitutes a take-out for boaters then there may be more ways to get in and out of the river than I said, but if safety and family access is a concern, seems risky and my groups never considered them. We have, however, enjoyed day trips and good fishing using the established ones.

    IP checked! Haha. But the Holston seems a lot like the Caney Fork to me, from the way you guys are describing it. Really long with a lot of pissy landowners.

    Not at all, the landowners on the Holston are extremely nice mainly because they haven't been peed on by disrespective fisherman and the ones who do access across them have been very courteous.

    Maybe those days of irritable landowners are gone.
