Best Access For Fly Fishing


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I am planning a day trip this saturday down to the little piney, most likely the white ribbon area. I fished Lane Spring one time, a few years back, but dont really know the area that well. I will be fly fishing and had a few quetions. What is the best overall access? Milldam Hollow, or somewhere else off of CR7460? I have read a few other posts about private land owners being confrontational, and I know that the stream and its immediate bank are considered public land, but I really want to avoid getting run off by an armed Newburgian curmudgeon if at all possible. I have been fly fishing for a few years now, but I also would like to avoid (if possible) areas that are ultra-tight as far as casting is concerned.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

You might want to read the other Little Piney thread again. The land along streams are not public unless owned by a state or federal entity. You have an easement over private land. Just a heads up.

You don't necessarily need to stay in the water. There are no simple explanations, that why the threads about the subject are so in-depth. You can just go fishing, use your best judgement, respect the stream side and don't worry too much about it. Good luck and good fishing.

For Catch & Release, Lane Springs is a Blue Ribbon regulation public area on the Little Piney. Will cost you $2 parking fee. Good place to wade fish upstream and downstream.

Milldam Hollow is best choice for White Ribbon regulations. There is more pubilc access south of Milldam on the west side, but you need a high clearance vehicle.

Vida Slab stories abound elsewhere.
