The Wild East Stomping Grounds
The Lehigh River is a large tail-water by eastern standards that is best fished from drift boats and rafts. It is arguably one of the best places to fly fish in Pennsylvania and one of the most scenic rivers on the east coast. The Lehigh is one of Pennsylvania's best kept secrets due to the rugged landscape of the area and sheer size of the river. Our target species on the Lehigh River are brown trout and rainbow trout. The river has good populations of wild and stocked trout and offers an experience to catch large fish on dry flies on big water. Our Lehigh guide season runs from March until late June until the waters warm and then picks up around the beginning of October.
The Susquehanna is the second largest river system in the U.S and one of the best smallmouth bass fisheries in Pennsylvania and perhaps arguably in the country. Smallmouth bass, an often overlooked quarry provide anglers with premium opportunities for streamer fishing and vicious top water action. When PA's waters are too warm to fish the Susquehanna is in full swing and offers incredible fishing opportunities. Join us on a float trip in one of our drift boats or rafts for some incredible fishing. Our Susquehanna season runs from roughly mid June until November. 30-80 fish days are common give or take.
The Juniata River or the "Big J" is one of the largest tributaries to the Susquehanna River. Our main target species on the Juniata are smallmouth bass and musky. The Juniata as a smallmouth bass fishery closely rivals that of the Susquehanna and the two rivers resemble each other in many ways. The river is best fished from drift boats or rafts. Fishing the Juniata is a much more intimate fly fishing experience as it is much smaller than the Susquehanna and it is wadable in many sections as well. It resembles the appearance of a big trout river in many locations and it is full of smallmouth bass. Our Juniata season runs from roughly mid June until November. 30-80 fish days are common give or take.
