Welcome to South Holston River Lodge

Year round fly fishing located right on the South Holston River in Northeast Tennessee.

South Holston River Lodge was founded in 2007 when Attorney Will Andersen purchased the 2 acre property along with his father Bill. They both realized immediately that this was a natural resource that everyone should enjoy and began taking steps to insure that this was possible. That first step was bringing in part owners and operators Jon Hooper and Tony Marcucci. It now ranks among the best fly-fishing destinations in the country.

South Holston River Lodge is a year round fly fishing lodge located on the seventh mile of the South Holston, a 14.6 mile tailwater. The river hosts 7,000 to 10,000 trout per mile and is best known for year round dry fly-fishing opportunities and our spectacular summer Sulphur and winter Blue Wing Olive hatch. South Holston River Lodge specializes in all inclusive fly-fishing packages, giving you the best experience possible for your next fly-fishing vacation.

"The South Holston River Lodge is extrodinary on so many levels. The view of the river was so mesmorizing that I allowed myself to be checkmated by an inferior chess player. What other fishing Lodge has such a rare collection of fly fishing books. The food was remarkable, Most notable However, was the kind and thoughtful service of the staff that seemed to anticipate every wish and desire. This is a special place..."
