A typical trip with us will be a float trip on the Youghiogheny River in a drift boat or oar rigged raft both crafts made for fishing shallow, fast moving rivers (max of two anglers per boat),in pursuit of trout and smallmouth bass or muskie depending on time of year and section of river. A typical day on the river with us entails a 7 am meet at the takeout where we will leave your vehicle, travel upriver to our launch point , drop the boat in, and spend the day on the river- stopping to have lunch and fish favorite spots. In the afternoon or early evening we will arrive back at your vehicle and you will be on your way.
Our guide staff is capable of hosting either fly or spin anglers. LHGS also promotes catch-and-release ethos and abides correspondingly on all trips.
Though we spend most of our time on the river, we do guide wade trips and other waterways for various species. We are more than willing to tailor the day to your liking, please ask and we can accommodate your group.
The early start is worth it. You may want to arive the night before and get more sleep.
