Most the walleye you will find will be below the rogersville steamplant. The crappie are spreadout from Kingsport all the way down to cherokee lake.

I myself have never caught any crappie from the area in and around Kingsport but knowing this would give reason for the find I saw at the Neatherland Inn area. About a month and a half ago there was over 20 crappie and some other fish that had been filleted and left on the river bank down there.

It would not surprise me that there would be a few Walleye....heck I saw a couple of Walleye caught in the Noli last year.....so I would suppose that the Holston might have a few.....

In the last 6 years fishing the holston around kingsport and surgoinsville i've probably caught 3 or 4 crappie, but i fish for smallies. So if you were targeting them you might be able to catch them more often.
