Morning folks. Been looking over many of the posts and it seems that a lot of folks are Fly Fishing the Little lehigh. I'm a little familiar with the Lehigh River and a bit confused if the Little Lehigh is just what you folks call the river or is it a smaller stream that is connected to the river. I'm in Yardley Bucks County so a trip to Allentown close to the Lehigh river is not much more than an hour away. I don't want anyone to reveal there fishing hole but can anyone tell me how to get to the Little Lehigh and where abouts should I look to fish the little lehigh. Is there public access to the little lehigh which makes sense for me to start as a newbie....thanks

Hi Pat - The Little Lehigh is a tributary to the Lehigh River.

It dumps into the Lehigh in South Allentown.

Here's a good place to start...

many thanks Heritage!!!! This location is only about an hour and 15 minutes from where I live. Will certainly need to do some more research on the Little Lehigh. Would you suggest working this area moving toward the river or away from the river?

Yes.

The stream fishes well both upstream from the fly shop, and downstream. Not far upstream is the fish hatchery. Downstream from the fly shop is a covered bridge. The special regs area runs from the bridge on Fish Hatchery road, down to 800' above the covered bridge.

The fishing farther down in the parkway is good as well. This area gets stocked. If you walk far enough from the parking areas, you'll likely find solitude, and less pressured fish.

I suggest a stop at the fly shop - Dave will help you. Tell him if he doesn't help you catch fish, I'll take him on a death march in a foot of snow (he'll laugh).

It used to be called the Little Lehigh Fly Shop. Now it's called the Heritage Fly Shop - no connection to me other than the owner (Dave Bittner) is a good friend and fishing buddy of mine.
