Cast your line for a chance at a big one! Compete with other anglers for a total of $3,000.00 in prizes. It's no fish story - come out and enjoy the fun! Some of the finest trout fishing in the eastern United States is located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation adjacent to the KOA Camping Resort. The Raven Fork River flows along one side of the campground with great fishing for those who prefer stream fishing. If you prefer pond fishing, you'll find three Tribal-owned trout ponds framing the west boundary of KOA. All are stocked twice weekly. A Tribal fishing license and a $10.00 entry fee is all you need to catch up to 10 trout per day. There's also an area on the river that is strictly for Fly Fishing Catch and Release only that require an additional special license. Fishing is permitted on the Reservation from one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.
