Little River Fly Fishing

Little River Fly Fishing

Little River Fly Fishing: Located in DuPont State Forest in eastern Transylvania County, the Little River is the most recent stream in our area to be designated Delayed Harvest (which is catch-and-release from October through May.) In season, the state stocks 3,425 fish along just 1.8 miles of river between Lake Dense and Hooker Falls, making for a dense fish population. Despite its name, the Little River is fairly wide and open throughout, and is easily accessed via the Hooker Falls Road and High Falls Trail. Deep-nymphing the plunge pools below the falls is usually productive, but there several long pools and runs below the Staton Road bridge for dry fly fans.

Directions from Brevard: Head northeast on US-64 E/S Broad St toward E Main St.  Slight right toward Old 64.  Merge onto Old 64. Continue onto Old Hendersonville Hwy. Turn right onto Everett Rd.  Turn right onto Crab Creek Rd. Turn right onto Dupont Rd. Continue onto Staton Rd. and proceed to the Hooker Falls Parking Lot on the right.
