    We still have a need for additional stream monitors that morning if you would like to be a part of "BATTLE OF GATLINBURG 2018".
    No special skill required simply measure the competitors fish, mark the length and return the trout to stream.
    Great opportunity to see some excellent anglers up close and maybe pick up some tips.

    Default Winners Announced "Battle of Gatlinburg 2018"


    "Battle of Gatlinburg 2018"

    Quick note of thanks to everyone who came out to the "BATTLE OF GATLINBURG 2018" Saturday. Whether you were a
    competitor, stream monitor, sponsor, or attendee your participation was greatly appreciated!

    Congratulations to the winners: 1st Place-Roger Wilson, 2nd Place-Peyton Bodo, 3rd Place-Josh Stinnett, and 4th Place-Brian Pendergrass; thanks to our top four finishers and to all our anglers who made this event possible. We had our first father and son team compete and take first and second place, and Peyton also represented our youngest angler ever at 13 years old, I can now say I have seen the future and both times it was named Peyton!

    Thanks to the City of Gatlinburg Parks Department for stocking the stream through downtown with some great fish including a 17 inch, a 16.5 inch, and a 13.5 inch trout that were caught and released. All fish were returned to the water safely to give someone their chance at fishing for trout right in the center of Gatlinburg.

    We truly had lightning in a bottle with stream conditions, weather, and the sheer number of fish caught and released. Total fish in inches caught by the anglers was 1,975.5 inches of rainbow trout; that is 164.62 feet of trout...astounding in a 3 hour timeline.
    We will be posting pictures and story line in all our social media and websites this week. Please look for our story of the "BATTLE OF GATLINBURG 2018" in the upcoming October issue of "SOUTHERN TROUT MAGAZINE".

    A big shout out to all our sponsors, Southern Trout Magazine, Little River Outfitters, Smoky Mountain Angler, 3 Rivers Angler and Rivers Edge Outfitters. Please visit their shops and websites, it is through their support that makes our Smoky Mountains area one of the greatest places in the United States for the sport of fishing.


    Again, thank you and I look forward to "BATTLE OF GATLINBURG 2019" and seeing everyone in the most unique fast paced event the "ONE FLY ROYALE".
