An Abundance of Possibility
Anglers, welcome to a watery paradise. Between the vast Nolichucky River and the many headwater streams hidden in the rugged Unicoi County mountains, you’re sure to find the perfect catch and leave with more than just a big fish story.
Whether you’re a beginner, seasoned professional, or somewhere in between, fishing enthusiasts will feel right at home casting a line in one of our many waterways. Don’t be surprised if you manage to hook something special. Here you’ll find all species of smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, black bass, rock bass, and musky. And if you happen to visit during the winter months, you’re likely to find yourself reeling in some river and rainbow trout.
Not to be outdone, Unicoi County’s game offerings are just as robust. Whether you’re bringing along a gun, muzzleloader, shotgun, or archery equipment, our forests will provide you with the terrain and wildlife that makes the sport so exciting. You can expect to leave the Cherokee National Forest victorious and your desire for the hunt satisfied.
When you venture into the depths of the Cherokee National Forest or lie in wait along our bodies of water, you’re sure to find a variety of game including white-tailed deer, black bear, elk, squirrel, rabbit, fox, otter, skunk, bobcat, beaver, coyote, turkey, grouse, quail, woodcock, snipe, canadian geese, ducks, and more. Just be sure to check Tennessee’s hunting seasons and laws to ensure your visit is successful.
