(Jan - June)
An urban, yet productive stream, home to a mix of stocked fish and wild browns. Lesser known than other popular PA streams in the State College and Pocono areas, as it lacks some major spring hatches, but provides plenty of public access.
(Oct - Feb, Apr 15 - June)
A modified tailwater. The lower 10 miles of the Wax produces hatches that can rival its neighbor the Delaware. This large waterway supports some natural reproduction, but is heavily stocked multiple times throughout the year and a good portion of those fish hold over. By far the best stocked stream in the region. The lower river also holds some sizeable smallmouth. Keep an eye on the water level, it fluctuates frequently.
The crown jewel of trout fishing east of the Mississippi. Nothing rivals the Big D in terms of insect life, number and quality of fish. Famed for its out of this world hatches, flyfishers from far and wide travel to the upper Delaware to test their dry fly skills on some very stream wise wild browns and rainbows. Beginners beware!
Some of the best smallmouth bass fishing can be found top to bottom on this multiple state monster. Great for canoeing and kayaking, as well as wading. Nothing fills the late summer trout void quite like catching big smallies on poppers and streamers. Carp, musky, pike, walleye and catfish round out the Q's offerings.
(Sept - Apr)
Famed for its size and the number of salmon and steelhead that enter the river system every fall and winter, the Salmon can be an addicting place. A little crowded for some people's taste, this prominent steelhead fishery offers up nearly 8 months of pulse-pounding action that make up for it. If you haven't steelheaded before, we'd recommend making it a point to.
(Oct - June)
Referred to by many PA flyfishers as 'The Next Great PA Trout Fishery', the Lehigh is quickly turning into a top fly fishing destination. Best fished from a float boat, this river is boulder strewn, fast and slippery. Though it receives heavy stocking, hatches are abundant, and the numbers of wild fish are improving each year. It's also a sneaky good late summer bass fishery!
