Little River

Fishing Paddling Swimming Trails Camping Wildlife Viewing Birding Picnic Area Shelter Restrooms

The first 18 miles of the river are all located within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; fly fish for wild rainbow trout and large brown trout in spectacular mountain scenery; rainbow trout stocked in spring and fall as water temperatures allow; flatwater paddlers will want to explore the quieter section of Little River that lies on the northern edge of the park where its navigable under normal conditions for approximately 10 miles as the river leaves the park from Walland downstream to Rockford; NOTE: There are no takeouts on Little River past the water plant and before the Rockford Dam. There is no portage at the dam and it is extremely dangerous.
