Clinch River, Norris Section 
   
Many 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 the Country. 
 
A weir dam divides the 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.
