Guided Fishing on Fishing Creek

Our home stream, Fishing Creek, in northeastern Pennsylvania, is a lovely freestone trout stream that offers some incredible fly fishing opportunities. We have managed private water here for 30 years. This management has resulted in some of the best trout fishing found in the northeast.

guiding0169Our water has not been stocked in many years and boasts a healthy population of big fish – you'll be surprised at the number, size and condition of the fish. The originally stocked fish are now as wary and selective as the wild fish and just as beautiful from living in Fishing Creek.

The managed water is strictly catch and release, no kill, and carefully managed to assure anglers of a quality experience on one of the coldest freestone streams in the state. As with all freestone streams, our best fishing is April, May, June & October.

Our guides are also instructors and have been with us for many years. They are professionals and are very good at what they do. Whether you're a novice or experienced angler, you will benefit from spending a guided day on the stream.

They are happy to teach knots and teach you about the fish. Your guide is your tutor for the day. The experienced angler can have as much or as little assistance as he wishes.

If possible, we suggest coming on a weekday as there will be fewer anglers on the stream and our guides can show you more water. But more importantly, come whenever you can. We're quite sure you'll be impressed with the stream and the fish.

Guided fishing days are from 9:00 – 5:00 unless otherwise arranged. Lunch is included. $350 for one person, $450 for two. Independent fishing can be arranged for that evening if desired at no extra cost.  If you cancel within 30 days, we will refund or apply the balance, less $100, to a later date.  Beyond 30 days, a full refund will be issued.
