Dark Blue Christmas Party Instagram PostWe’ll be open tomorrow, Sunday the 23rd, from 12-5pm as well as Christmas Eve from 10-3pm. Everyone at 3 Rivers Angler is wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

BrownWater, water everywhere and not a drop to fish! What a wild and crazy prelude to winter we have had here in East Tennessee.  If you’re counting, on the 15th of November the rain gauge at the airport had recorded 4.15 inches of rain. The average rainfall for November is 3.98 inches. Further, the year to date average is 41.70” and to date we’ve collected 52.75”. A brace of hurricanes and a couple of northeasters have contributed to our abundance of water this fall and as I type the rivers literally are running at capacity. That’s unlikely to change in the immediate future despite TVA’s due diligence.

Black Friday Guide TripsBeginning on Black Friday and runnning through the end of November 3 Rivers Angler will be running a spcecial on any Full Day Float Trip for the 2019 calendar year. Come in and shop for the men and women in your life who love the angling lifestyle and reward them with a special day on the water in 2019! 

We are offering $50 off any 2019 Full Day Guide Trip. 

Gift certificates available for their stockings or to put on the tree!

This report will be short and sweet. With inclement weather keeping us well outside the operating guide yet again, flood stage water is the hand we have been dealt for the foreseeable future. There are brief glimmers of hope that present themselves, perhaps just enough to scare off spells of imminent depression.
