Ocoee River White Water Rafting
The Ocoee River in Tennessee is the premier river for whitewater rafting in the Southeastern United States. from class 1 to class 5 rapids. these are great to watch or participate with many different outfitter groups. The OWC marries the best of the natural and artificial worlds. A sleepy river set in a lush, rocky river gorge, this section of the Ocoee was carefully modified into a channel to enhance its rapids. During the 1996 Summer Olympics, the Ocoee Whitewater Center opened its doors as a premier whitewater venue for athletes from all over the world.
The Tellico River rises in the Unicoi Range of mountains near the Tennessee – North Carolina state line. As the river flows west, it is joined by its major tributaries the Bald River and the North River. The river meanders through a mountain gorge before reaching the broad fertile plains of Tellico Plains in Monroe County. It is a tributary of the Little Tennessee River. The Tellico Dam impounds the lower reaches of the Tellico River and Little Tennessee River into the Tellico Reservoir, locally known as Tellico Lake. The Tellico River is nationally recognized as a premiere trout stream, renowned for brook, brown, and rainbow trout. Trout habitat requirements include water temperatures below 68 degrees, heavy oxygenation and clean, clear water, and these conditions prevail in the Tellico River corridor. Bald River and North River, tributaries of the Tellico, are managed as wild trout streams with brown, rainbow and brook trout. These wild trout streams usually lack large individuals, but some brown trout as large as 10 pounds have been caught in the North River. The TWRA stocks trout in Tellico River, Citico Creek, and Green Cove Pond from March through August. Fishermen here enjoy unspoiled wilderness settings and, more often than not, no company from other fishermen. Green Cove Pond is specially reserved for handicapped individuals, children, and seniors. Bass, drum, crappie, carp, bluegill, walleye, muskellunge, and catfish are also found in local waters.
