Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Schools

Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Schools
Pennsylvania's lakes, rivers and streams are home to more than 30 species of game fish. Wild and stocked trout swim the cool waters of the Susquehanna River and its tributaries, Roaring Creek and Hemlock Creek. Other top-notch trout streams in the Keystone State include Slate Run, the Genesee Fork of Pine Creek and Penns Creek. Oil Creek State Park is also a popular spot for fly fishing for walleye and smallmouth bass. Several fly fishing schools in Pennsylvania can help you to get started in the sport.
