The very upper part of Tellico Lake

The is about two miles above the Big Creek Boat Ramp in upper Tellico.  The ramp offers access to the area between the ramp and Sloan Bridge and the area between the ramp and where the river is moving and less than a foot deep.  Phillip and I paddled up stream from the rampo two weeks ago and kept going until the river is flowing and we had to paddle against the current.  The TVA/TRDA property ends at that point according to the map.  From the boat ramp upstream, the river is beautiful!  Limestone cliffs/rocks, trees creating a shady tunnel, smallmouth bass, and more!  Not many places to get out of the canoe along shore and not but one possible campsite this way.
