In these waters, smallmouth are king.

Come join the fun and test your fishing skills in one of the South’s premier smallmouth bass tournaments! A limited number of anglers will compete to be crowned Sevierville’s Smallmouth King of the Smokies!

The Sevierville Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the seventh annual Smallmouth King Bass Tournament on May 31- June 1, 2025, in Sevierville, Tennessee. Anglers will test their skills on Sevierville’s world-class bass waters. The Little Pigeon River and its tributaries will be the site of this two-day event that allows anglers to fish from the shore, wading, or from a kayak.

Be a part of the area’s first smallmouth-bass-only, catch-photograph-release event. Sevierville’s waters will be teeming with thousands of migrating bass on their spring runs.

Winners will be determined by their two-day total length of smallmouth bass greater than 12 inches in length. Realtime tournament updates are sure to keep competitors and spectators alike on the edge of their seats as anglers register their catches. Prizes will be awarded to the top three anglers on the final day of competition.
