    Question Stocked Portion of Little Pigeon

    In May I'm hoping to rent a cabin with direct wade-in access to the TWRA-stocked portion of the Little Pigeon R north of the Park.

    Are there such cabins?

    If so, how's the fishing?

    any access below the visitor center on the spur will be in contaminated waters...the only cabins above the visitor center and town are at westgate time share...currently these waters are in delayed harvest....and really cold

    Sorry, Sam. I did a poor job of explaining where I mean. Some refer to the stream as the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon, others Greenbrier. I've heard there are cabins on Hwy 416 from Pittman Center in the direction of Sevierville. I'd be going in May or June.

    How so? So there are no fish at all, or what? That looked like prime water to me

    The Gatlinburg waste treatment facility (on the lower end of town) is the culprit in this sad tale. Yes it's a fine looking stream but not suitable for swimming/fishing.

    The visitor center in Gatlinburg or Sugarlands?

    Default Not quite the location requested

    We've stayed and caught fish at Little River Log Cabins. They have the walk out and start fishing feature you were requesting. I thing there is a link to them on the troutfest section. From the cabins you can walk up to the LRO shop and the IGA.

    google pittman center rentals or hwy 416 rental cabins....you may have to add sevier county there are some rentals out there...if you didn't mind driving 10 minutes, then the b&b named quail ridge would be great...
