The Rivers Of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania has a nice list of rivers worth 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 have good to great smallmouth fishing.
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. The Lehigh is stocked and has some big fish, don’t be confused with the stocked and wild. The stocked trout will grow big. There is a good wild population in the gorge run and in the lower river. Most of the large fish are stocked by Lehigh Stocking Association and are good looking fish. It is still worth drifting and that is really the only way to fish the Lehigh. It is not the Delaware but, is closer to home. Wading can be tough and when you do, you will be stationed in that one spot. The easy access spots are were they stock. There are some good hatches, Hendrickson, Sulphurs and BWO along with a varies of Caddis (tan and green).
