Come and fish the Tennessee River for one of the most unique fish found in the South.


Since 2011 the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has been stocking walleye near Watts Bar Dam to bolster a declining population of sauger. See more in this article written by Capt. Richard Simms.

Capt. Scott Lillie specializes in trolling techniques and has been honing his skills in finding and catching Tennessee River walleye, with great success we might add. In the process he also catches a wide variety of other species including smallmouth bass, white bass, catfish and huge drum. His trips regularly produce plenty of action and some great filets for the freezer.


On a seasonal basis he occasionally branches out to other East Tennessee lakes for yellow perch and even trout. There is no experience or angling expertise required. It can be a great new experience for the avid angler, OR the same great experience for someone who has never touched a fishing rod, including kids.

Lillie can carry up to three anglers in his Tracker Pro Guide 175.


Lillie cut his teeth learning to troll for trout and salmon on the Great Lakes. He grew to love these very specialized trolling techniques and has transferred the skills acquired over 30 years to Tennessee.

Sit back, relax and enjoy a unique fishing trip with Scott.
