Clinch River, Norris Section
experienced anglers consider the section of Clinch River located below the 265 ft. high Norris Dam to be one of the finest
trout fisheries in
weir dam divides that section of river immediately adjacent
to the City of Norris into two distinctly different fishing environments:
- The section above the weir dam provides
fishermen in boats deeper
water in which to fish.
- The section below
the weir dam provides the more
shallow cascading water
preferred by fly
fishermen in waders.
Regardless, there are many river access points along the Clinch River from which to embark on fishing, boating and other water sports activities.
