PA Little Lehigh River, TCA
Marker Description: Special regulation stretch. Fly only, no kill, no wading [wading is now permitted throughout this section]. This part of the Little Lehigh is loaded year round with fine trout, as the regional hatchery is literally on the river. Nice Little Lehigh Fly shop right next to the parking lot, the man knows the hatch, trout in the shop itself coming from a spring - cool. The place is a little like a Seurat painting - a park but you can feel like your in the wild in some parts. Every trip holds the possibility of a lunker trout, and even the townies who slap the water with their salmon egg patterns and yarn bobbers do well. Fishing is heavy on weekends, best bet is a weekday morning. Crane flies, foam beetles and lighter dry flies are stream favorites. Lil' Lehigh fly shop stocked with whatever you'll need. You'd be hard pressed to find more colorful and vibrant trout anywhere in the area. My personal best- a 25" brown just down from the "kiddie pool" taken on a big ugly yellow nymph.

good amount of fishing pressure today. Couldn't see as many fish in the water as normal despite that the water was clear - I did see a good number of fish at the foot bridge below the fly shop. I caught one small rainbow of a pink beadhead.

Turns out you can wade the entire stretch. I also heard that the hatchery flooded and fish were swept into the river. There are always a lot of fish in the river but didn't do that well today. See my vid of the little rainbow:


Whatever, I caught a monster at Cedar Creek beforehand so you can't have everything. Also won $150 at the Sands Casino on the way home. Times are good.

Big trout, catch and release weekdays all to yourself.
