Little Schuylkill River

Little Schuylkill River is a tributary of the Schuylkill River in northeast Pennsylvania in the United States.

It rises south of McAdoo Heights in Schuylkill County Pennsylvania, on top of Broad Mountain. It flows south, then southwest passing through the communities of Tamaqua and New Ringgold. The river joins the Schiylkill River near Port Clinton north of Hawk Mountain. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has designated two parts of the stream special trout stocking areas.
