Hey guys,

I just moved to Johnson City and was looking for some info on the rivers and streams up here.

I have scouted the Watauga. From Watauga to Sycamore Shoals all the way up to both dams. I read in another thread where this river was described as a "zoo". I have seen a few fisherman but nothing to the affect of a zoo. Does Sycamore Shoals offer any good fishing. I am recovering from back surgery, so the shallow slow water is tempting, but not if there aren't any fish. It's also 10mins from my house.

What about the Doe, and any others?
