Fishing at Pigeon Forge Hotels
– We are the only one that we know of -

We have 400 feet of river frontage for fishing along the Little Pigeon River – right in the middle of Pigeon Forge. Our guests can fish from the bank or wade right in and then move upstream to the Old Mill – 2 miles to the east. We have a unique opportunity to give our guests trout fishing at Pigeon Forge hotels – ours.

The Riverwalk Greenway in Pigeon Forge is a footpath that follows the Little Pigeon River for nearly two miles, and includes numerous access points.

The Little Pigeon River is one of Tennessee’s premier trout fishing streams, with opportunities to catch stocked rainbow trout as well as wild brook trout. Smallmouth bass inhabit the water as well.

Fishing License Needed for Fishing at Pigeon Forge Hotels

Fishing at Pigeon Forge Hotel

Fishing on our river bank in Pigeon Forge. Or wade upstream for two miles of fishing and river bank access along the River Walk.

A current Tennessee fishing license is required to fish in Pigeon Forge or anywhere else along the Little Pigeon River.

Licenses are available online through the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency website as well as bait shops and various other retailers across the state. Seasons and limits for trout and all other fish species — with the exception of smallmouth bass — are in accordance with statewide regulations, and you can find these regulations on the Wildlife Resources Agency website or in print form at most places where licenses are sold.

While fishing in Pigeon Forge is governed by statewide regulations, be aware that Gatlinburg enforces many of its own additional rules, including a requirement to purchase an additional town fishing permit and a ban on all fishing on Thursdays, when fish are stocked.

Fishing in Other Nearby Parts of the River

The river splits into three forks in the Sevierville, and the West Fork of the Pigeon River flows through Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg before entering Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Fishing is allowed along most of the river, including the Pigeon Forge area.

Most fishermen who come to the Little Pigeon River do so in pursuit of trout.

While trout fishing is permitted in the city of Pigeon Forge, these fish become more plentiful farther upstream. Rainbows are stocked weekly in Gatlinburg, while wild brook trout are seldom found downstream from the national forest.

Fly-fishing is effective, and you can usually catch fish by imitating whichever insect species is hatching at the time of your visit.

It is possible to catch rainbow trout up to 20 inches in length. Brook trout tend to be smaller, but these fish are less common and much more wary of anglers, which makes catching them all the more rewarding.

Smallmouth bass and panfish also inhabit the Little Pigeon River, and the waters in the Pigeon Forge area harbor bass in the 3-pound class.

Smallmouths tend to hang around rocky cover in or near deep water, and the most productive areas are deep pools immediately downstream from rapids.

Fly-fishing with wet or dry flies can be effective, and you can also tempt big bass with soft plastic lures and baits that imitate crayfish.

Ample shore access is available in Pigeon Forge, and this section of the river downstream to Sevierville is also perfect for exploring by kayak or float tube.

A special limit of one fish per day with a 20-inch minimum length limit is in place for smallmouth bass from the mouth of the Little Pigeon River through Pigeon Forge to the national park boundary.

Public parks in Gatlinburg also provide access, and Highway 441 follows the river upstream from Gatlinburg all the way to its headwaters, deep inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Numerous trails lead from the highway to the river, and at most times it is possible to hike or wade upstream by following the river.
