And there are some pretty good fishing opportunities closer. There is even a small stream that holds a pretty decent wild trout population 40 minutes from my door.

So yeah - even though I wish it was closer to some limestone streams, pittsburgh is still a nice place to live IMO.


Do you mind me asking what neighborhood you live in? I was driven all over the city yesterday and can definitely see that it might take longer to get out from some neighborhoods than others.

Thanks!

I live in the north hills area - about 5 miles north of "dahntahn" - and just off of route 279. Quite handy for me to bypass traffic whenever I go fishing in any direction.

The south hills part of town is very tough to get around in IMO, without sitting in traffic. I would avoid that area, unless there is someplace there where I really need to go to.

If I were to pick a part of the area to live that is more convenient to get fishing, it would be the north hills - or even better, the eastern area - which is closer to the great limestone streams of central PA

Thank you all again for your replies. I know it's been a while, but we are definitely moving to Pittsburgh and hoping to do a couple weeks of exploring and fishing when we get there before school and work start. I will refer to your comments and the maps on this site for ideas on where to go!

I just have kind of a dumb question... I was reading about "opening day" and can't seem to find out what that means exactly. Does that mean you can't fish for trout before that? Or would you not even be able to anyway? Here in NM we can fish year round for trout, in fact some of the better fishing we had in the San Juan was during some biting cold and snow.

You can fish year around for the most part. Approved Trout Waters (streams that are stocked) close from beginning of March until opening day which is early or middle of April

I've actually heard of people fly fishing in Point State park right in downtown, depending on where you are going to live. I live about 25 minutes from downtown off Rte 28

^ I've tossed streamers at the point before. I'm pretty sure people walking by thought I was insane.
