Petition to support Lehigh River Trout Fishing

Please see the link below and consider signing a petition to ask the US Army Core of Engineers to consider trout fishing (wild and stocked) as they conduct a re-evaluation study of the Francis E. Walter Dam.

The petition was started by the Lehigh Coldwater Fishery Alliance.

Fly Tying Season is here...

As the temperature drops, many of us turn to fly tying to restock our boxes and hold us over until warmer weather, bug hatches and generally more active fish.  Here are handful of great video resources for some inspiration:

Fly Fishing the Ozarks

Tightline Video

Kelly Galloup's The Slide Inn

Fly Fish Food

Davie McPhail


While there are probably hundreds more great resources, these are all very well produced, cover lots of techniques and have enough info to keep anyone busy for several Winters.

Don't forget....

To get your 2020 PA Fishing License!

You can do so online HERE.

As much as I liked having the trout stamp, I REALLY like being able to print multiple copies, and have one saved on my computer & cell phone just in case.  No excuse to get caught without one, so take 5 mins, get your new licenses, then go test it out on your favorite stream.

Best of luck for 2020!  

Fly Fishing Film Tour returns March 2020
