You're refering to a survival situation, right? If so, and there is a nearby waterway, trying to get some fish MIGHT be fruitfull, but you'd have to know what you were doing.
At the same time, why not set out some snares and deadfalls? If fish AND game are in the same area, try to make the best of both of them.
If fire, shelter, water and distress signals have been taken care of I would trap fish before I would try to trap small game. It is easier and everything you need is in the woods.It is also a natural holding tank until you need them.
the answer would depend on terrain, weather, and situation.
Also what is the skill level of the individual, what supplies they have. Foe example, do you know how to set up aboriginal snares, deadfalls, etc?
Can you make a wier to catch (trap) fish in a neary stream?
Do you consider grasshoppers small game? Crawfish?
