Little River Description of Fishery
About Public Fishing Rights
Little River is a tributary of the Oswegatchie River in St. Lawrence County. It is stocked in two reaches. The lower is from the mouth to the Oswegatchie Trail and is stocked with 1800 brown trout. The upper section is at Aldrich Pond and is stocked with 1700 brook trout. Between these two sections, there is 5.1 miles of Public Fishing Rights and additional Forest Preserve lands. Wild browns and brookies are found throughout both sections, but not in high numbers.
Public Fishing Rights (PFR’s) are permanent easements purchased by the NYSDEC from willing landowners, giving anglers the right to fish and walk along the bank (usually a 33’ strip on one or both banks of the stream). This right is for the purpose of fishing only and no other purpose. Treat the land with respect to insure the continuation of this right and privilege. Fishing privileges may be available on some other private lands with permission of the land owner. Courtesy toward the land-owner and respect for their property will insure their continued use.
