of Pennsyvania's best trout streams are in our area.
The season starts with shad fishing in the Delaware.
The 40 miles of river from Portland up to Milford
are both bank and boat accessible. Check out the
national park information centers for access and
season continues in the spring with the opening of
trout season on the second saturday in April (for
us a National Holiday). There are ponds and
lakes open to the public during this time for public
fishing. Try Brady's Lake, Peck's Pond,
Hidden Lake, Lake Wallenpaupack, and Promised Land.
best streams for April trout fishing are; The Brodhead
from Analomink to Stroudsburg.There is limited
access below Stroudsburg to the Delaware, but this
section has mostly hold-over trout and can
be worth the effort. Walk down the old railroad bed
south of Glen Park. The McMichaels Creek with
its easy access and abundance of fish. Pocono Creek
has limited access and a section with special regulations.
Try the Bushkill a little later on in the season and
into early summer for its best fishing.
Bushkill is also the best spot for stream fly
fishing in the section owned by the Boy Scouts
of America. A special permit is required from
highlight of Fly fishing, though, is the section of
the West Branch of the Delaware River which sports
the "Best Wild Trout Fishing East of The Rockies".
The temperature is consistantly right and the water
pure and clean. This spot is about one mile above
(on the river) Hancock, NY. If your an expert or someone
wanting to improve your skills try lessons at Al
