Fly Fishing The Rivers Of Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania has a nice list of rivers worth fly fishing.  Trout Rivers would be the Lehigh, Delaware, Lackawanna (wade only) and Lackawaxen (wade only) here in the east.  Then you have a group of smallmouth rivers in central PA to the Delaware River.  The Juniata, Susquehanna, Schuylkill and the Delaware all have good to great smallmouth fishing. 

Come learn from the most experienced guide service in Pennsylvania.

Susquehanna and Juniata Rivers 

The Susquehanna River is coming back to life. After many years of poor bass fishing the river has shown some of it’s old glory of 30 to 50 plus fish days. Size and health has greatly improved. If you like throwing streamers, poppers or hitting the white  fly hatch, the Susquehanna or Juniata is the place. Drift boat trips are the best way to cover the water. Sometimes, depending on water level, we park the boat and you get out and wade fish. Come and enjoy some of the best, if not the best, smallmouth fishing in Pennsylvania.

What can you say about the Lehigh River, the stocked trout and along with the wild trout, big water and some big fish. Fly Fishing the river can be a blast due to some heavy hatches. The Lehigh is stocked with large Rainbows and Browns, and has some big wild fish. There is a good wild population in the Lehigh Gorge section and in the lower river. It is not the Delaware but, it’s closer to home.  Prime time is April, May, and early June and in the fall, late September to December. Streamer fishing can be good in the off months. The river flow is controlled by two dams. It can get high and can get low. You will see a lot of rafters coming down the river on the weekends and weekdays as the water warms. There are scheduled release for the rafters and to maintain the water level for the trout. Wading can be tough and when you do, you will be stationed in that one spot because moving around the river is not easy. The easy access spots are were they stock. There are some good hatches, Hendrickson, Sulphurs and BWO along with Caddis (tan and green). Throw in some Stoneflies, Iysonychia and you can have some good dry fly action.

Delaware River; West, East, and Main Stem.

The upper Delaware River should be on your “bucket list”. Between the hatches, and the large Rainbow and Browns, it is the closest you will get to a western drift boat experiece. Bill Nolan, your guide, has years of experience on the river, and knows how to approch these picky fish. Hendrickson to Green Drakes and Sulphurs most of the summer. And if you are lucky you will experience the stonefly hatch.

Full Day $525.00 for two anglers
