    Default Big Lost Creek

    Anybody have any information on fishing Big Lost Creek around the Cleveland, TN area? I would appreciate any info, comments, warnings, wishes or anecdotes that anyone has to offer.

    The lower end, where it joins the Hiwassee River is private property, but you can access the creek via a new hiking trail, the Benton Mackaye Trail (maps at www.bmta.org), that bypasses it and covers pretty much the whole drainage.

    Or there's also a USFS car campground about 3 miles upstream from the river that can be accessed from a forest road that turns off Hwy 30 a mile or so south of Reliance.

    Back in the 70s and 80s you could always catch trout in there. *It was good enough that the Chattanoooga TU chapter annually planted trout eggs in the upper part, above the campground, each winter.

    Not any more, though. *It gets too low and warm in August. *The trout are gone; however, you can still have fun with the small-mouth and bream.

    Besides that, it's a beautiful creek and makes for a nice day hike, especially in April/May when the wildflowers come out.
