The Weir Dam at South Holston in Historic Sullivan County is a beautiful place to relax, view the lake and enjoy some fishing in Northeast Tennessee. Osceola Island is pictured in the background, and the island has a beautiful hiking trail along the river. Built by TVA in 1991, the weir creates a sustained habitat for aquatic life, especially bass and trout. South Holston River is known around the globe for its wonderful trout fishing. This image was taken in Springtime, just as the trees were beginning to bud out. This image was processed to give a painterly and somewhat ethereal effect to the already beautiful landscape.
