Wild and Native Trout Fishing In Pennsylvania
The whole commonwealth has wild and native (brook) trout streams where you would not think there would be any. Rick lives in Berks county and yes, there are native Brook Trout in several streams. Wild browns are the most abundant trout found throughout Pennsylvania. From Philadelphia to Pittsburgh to Erie to Scranton, trout can be in the smallest streams to the larger rivers. Wild trout can be found in the Schuylkill where they can hold year round where springs and cool water stream keep the temperature down into their zone year round. Look for wetlands that produce a creek. Look for small creek that have some plunge holes with cover. Look for root piles and fallen trees when they can hide from prey and the sun. Just go out and explore and see what you can find. If there is a trail you are in the wrong place.
2019 Packaged Trip
Wild Trout Trip (2 nights) June 4th to 6th, 2019
New for 2019, we are offering an all-inclusive guided trip into Potter County Pennsylvania. This guided trip will be specifically dry fly fishing with short rod (6′ to 7 1/2′ 3 to 4 wt’s) for native brook trout. We will be targeting a few of Northern Pennsylvania’s premier brook trout streams. Some of these waters are well known in the region and some are not so well known. All of these waters fish very well and all are exceptionally awesome brook trout streams.
This trip will be 1 on 1 (one angler to 1 guide) and is limited to 4 anglers. Lodging for the anglers will be at Kettle Creek Adventures Lodge (www.kcadventuresbandb) located in the Kettle Creek Valley just a few miles north of the town of Cross Fork.
