Fishing near Sevierville area - TN

Recommended Posts

I would suggest you stop by the Bass Pro Shop at the Sevierville exit(exit 407) on I-40 and speak with the guys in the fishing department. They can help you with info on the area lakes and the trout fishing on the streams in the area. Trout fishing regulations can be confusing. If you are interested in trout fishing check with the fly shop in BPS.......Al

The Pigeon and Little pigeon rivers around there have some great smallmouth fishing, even around and through town. I used to like to fish around construction areas where it'd been dug out as well as around the bridges. The Pigeon coming out of Douglas lake ( I think) has great striper, wiper and white bass fishing below it, take some small white spinners like a Roostertail and/or some white curlytail grubs and you'll get into some. For trout, the Raven Fork in G-burg and the Little Pigeon further up near Pigeon Forge have some good trout. Just about any stream in the Park has smll bows and further up, brookies.   If you can tell me where your cbin is, I might be able to give you a little more specific spots.

Thanks - I had planned on heading to Douglas Lake.  Our cabin is right on Little Pigeon River -  up in the mountains on Old Crow Rd. in Sevierville.  I am looking forward to some great fishing.  Thanks so much for the info -  :)

Yes - I don't really have any experience trout fishing.  My son caught a few last time we were up there, but I was really thinking more along the lines of bass fishing.  Have you been to Douglas Lake?

Yeah, I was wondering about the level there - thanks.  What about night fishing?  I've never been night fishing and I'd love to at least one night- do you think it's too early? I heard summer is the best time, but like I said, I have never been.

I've only fished the lake a few times, all at night.  AlWolbach is the expert on that lake, but I don't think the night bite really starts up until June when the weather gets hot.

I went to gatlinburg in january, and I was told to fish behind the outlet mall, by the guys at BPS.  They said it is a good spot for smallies and trout.  I never made it cause it rained, but I did go take a look at the spot while my GF shopped.
