Notice

* The South Holston and Watauga Rivers are controlled by the Tennessee Valley Authority in generating water.

Each trip is planned and based on the water release schedule which is scheduled every night at 6:00 P.M. The schedule is often released in advance. However, in the event it is not, coordination of your trip sometimes takes place the evening of your trip. All this means is your guide will call or text you with a GPS location and time for your pickup unless arrangements have been made for pick-up at local lodging.
