Register now to be a part of the largest trout tournament in the Smokies! The 16th Annual Smoky Mountain Trout Tournament is a two-day fishing event in April that encourages family-friendly competition amidst the splendor of the Smokies. Prior to the event, more than 20 miles of streams will be stocked with over 5,000 trout. Open to adults, children, residents, and tourists alike, the fishing tournament offers more than $10,000 in cash and prizes for tournament winners!
As you make plans to visit the Smokies for the tournament, be sure to make your reservations for one of our beautiful cabins on the water. You’ll get the unique experience of being in the Smoky Mountain streams during the day and relaxing beside one of the streams, rivers, or lakes at night. With several cabin options to choose from—including A River Song (sleeps 10 and includes a large private deck with an unbeatable view!) and On the River (pet-friendly cabin for four with an outdoor hot tub facing the river)—you are sure to find a perfect option for your group or family.
