Cataloochee Creek originates on the western slope of the Cataloochee Divide. From there it runs through a beautiful valley for several miles before entering a small gorge below and flowing into Waterville Lake. The entire watershed is within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is one of the most pristine runs in the state. There is a reasonably good watershed that should allow for dependable water levels for much of the wet part of the year.
