The event will be held on the French Broad, Holston, and Tennessee Rivers located throughout the greater Knoxville area. Monies raised will help launch an effort to provide greater access to the Upper Holston River and other outstanding fishing and recreational waters in the region.


The Three Rivers Carp Cup is a one day fly fishing only tournament to benefit the Legacy Parks Foundation. Legacy Parks Foundation is a non-profit organization which works to assure that the local community enjoys exceptional recreational opportunities, natural beauty and open spaces, and that those assets exist for generations to come.


There are two divisions for anglers to compete for the biggest carp catch — Motorized and Non-Motorized (Kayak/SUP/Canoe/Wade). A camera will be needed and special rulers will be supplied to record the captures. Anglers will want to attend an informal meet and greet on Friday, August 16 at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center to meet fellow competitors and to go over the rules for the Tournament. The final “weigh-in”, Awards Ceremony and Dinner will be held at 7pm Saturday evening at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center.

The 3RCC is a fundraiser to support the continued development of recreational opportunities along the Holston and French Broad Rivers located below Cherokee and Douglas Dams respectively. At present, access along the French Broad Blueway is adequate but incomplete while public access along the Holston River is extremely limited.


As a result this unique outdoor asset is currently underutilized by a variety of users. All proceeds from the 3 Rivers Carp Cup will go to support increased access opportunities on both rivers for a variety of users including fishermen, recreational paddlers, and wildlife enthusiasts.
