Rates And Reservations

During our guided fishing trips, we spend most of our time fishing the middle section of the Youghiogheny river. Our guides also do guided wade trips on the area tributaries when river conditions or client desire are needed.


The river finally dropped, and gave up some nice variety this weekend, including a nice channel cat on the fly!

If you are planning to trout fish on the Middle this week, keep an eye on water temps. The reduced releases from the dam mean less cold water in the river, and a reduced chance that a hooked trout will live to fight another day.

When in doubt, fish for bass! They don't mind the warm water, and you may be surprised what ends up on the end of your line!
