The Little River, which runs thru the park, is the only trout stream in the county stocked by the state. The stocking begins in late February and continues until mid June. The actual proposed stocking schedule is list below. For more information of trout fishing in Tennessee contact the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
In addition to the stocked trout in Little River, the park abounds with wild trout. Though hard to catch and often very difficult to find, wild brook trout can be found in a large part of the park. There has been an effort in the past few years to preserve and bring back this wild population. Seasons, limits and legal methods can be found at the National Park's web site.
For the most up to date information on fishing in the park contact our friends at "Little River Outfitters" here in Townsend. They have the latest in equipment, flies, and local knowledge as well as guides who know the park and surrounding waters and hatches.
"It's a fine fly shop rivaling some of the best I've ever seen" says Wilson Reynolds our owner who has been a guide and outfitter for over thirty years and fished most of the famous streams in the Western United States and Alaska.
Also, check out their web for the latest stream conditions and fishing activity.
So for whatever your fishing needs may be, check with them first and tell them Tremont sent you.
