Jen Ripple writes about a pair of waterways united by their fishing heritage, history, and the charm of Bristol, Tenn., and Va.
The twin cities of Bristol, Tenn., and Bristol, Va., stand as unique and charming sisters quietly nestled in the Appalachian Mountains.
Two major rivers run through this area—the fabled South Holston and the lesser-known Watauga. The South Holston originates from the South Holston Dam in Bristol, Tenn., and stretches for approximately 52 miles before it joins the North Holston in Kingsport, Tenn.
The Watauga River originates in North Carolina and flows for 78 miles before joining the South Fork Holston River.
