View Full Version : Late August Little River Fishing

I'm going to be in town the last week of August and camping right on the Little River. If you get out early enough, do you have a chance to catch anything on the Little River or do you need to go up higher and find the cooler water?

Lindy--Be on the stream as soon as it is light enough to see a fly and you should have a couple of good hours. In fact, it's the best way, short of a rain muddying up the stream, to catch a big trout this time of year. That being said, if you want long hours of fishing you need to get up higher.

I have fished the portion of the little river that runs along the little river trail in elkmont 3 times over the past couple of weeks and have brought fish to hand on every visit. I normally hike up the trail about 1/2 mile and get in the water. Early in the morning and late in the evening have been the best times, as usual. Further, while there are numerous people walking along the trail, I have only encountered one other fisherman on that stretch of water.
