A special event is planned for Big Tumbling Creek located at the Clinch Mountain Fee Fishing Area for June 12, 14, 16, & 17, 2017. A special trophy trout stocking to include more than 400 trophy sized brook, brown, and rainbow trout stocked throughout the week will test the skills of anglers of all ages. Two barrier-free trails are now open for limited mobility anglers.
A daily permit ($8) is required of anglers; however, children 12 and under may fish without a permit as long as they are accompanied by a permitted adult and their combined creel does not exceed that of the adult (6 trout). Daily permits are no longer available in Saltville and must be purchased online or through a license agent prior to arrival at the Fee Area.
