Laurel Creek & West Prong / Little River
Both of these follow the road leading up to Cades Cove and are often over looked by anglers! Can also be accessed by West Prong Hiking Trail. Willing population of rainbow trout! Easy Access with many pull outs available next to the road!
Middle Prong / of the Little River
This steam runs along side the road that leads up to Tremont in the national park. Beautiful small to medium size trout stream! Rainbow trout, Brown Trout & Small Mouth Bass!
East Prong / of the Little River
The largest and most often fished! You can access much of it off route 73 that runs through the park between Townsend and Metcalf Bottoms. There are also a number of tributaries that have excellent fishing! Brown & Rainbow Trout!
West Prong / of the Little Pigeon River
One of the best fly fishing streams in the Park! The west prong of the little Pigeon River runs beside route 441 and 71 through the park between Gatlinburg and up towards Clingmans Dome.
Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River
One of the Parks most beautiful streams! Follows the road out of Gatlinburg. Nice stream but not quite as good fishing as some of the others!
Large Mouth Bass, Walleye, Crappie, Blue Gill & Catfish are some of the game fish you will find when fishing this Tennessee Reservoir Lake! Hiring a guide and boat make it even more enjoyable for the young and old alike. Guided Fishing Trips are sure to produce a nice catch!
