Pennsylvania Fly Fishing

Fishy Intentions on a Pa Keystone Select Stream

I enjoy many of the YouTube videos posted about fly fishing in Pennsylvania. A long-time member of PaFlyFish, @mute has been posting his videos for several years on his channel Fishy Intentions. He covers all kinds of streams, mostly from Southeastern Pennsylvania. I like the streams that are covered because he shares a great mix of all types of trout fly fishing that you find in the state. It really represents all the different waters and trout species. He also seems quite proficient at finding and catching palomino trout.

His latest video covers a recent day trip to a Keystone Select stream and some of the action with him and his friends. @mute also has a blog called Fishy Intentions where he posts details about his fishing trips.

Fly Fishing Getting Started - The Caddisflies

caddisflies1.jpg

Trout enjoy a wide array of food, with insects being more popular. While mayflies (Ephemeroptera) enjoy much of the spotlight, caddisflies (Trichoptera) are incredibly plentiful in waters across the region. Not always the preferred insect of fly anglers, mostly due to a lack of familiarity.

Caddisflies are hardy insects and have thrived in streams that have been decimated by pollution. Streams like the Tulpehocken, Oil Creek, and Casselman are just a few streams known for their abundant caddisfly populations in our region. For many of these streams, the caddisfly is so prolific that mayflies are often an afterthought for anglers.

The caddisfly behavior is a little less predictable and is certainly one of the reasons it is not as popular for many anglers. Many mayflies can be timed to within a few days and hours. The Green Drakes on Penn's Creek are revered by anglers the same way the...

Backcountry fishing in yellowstone national park 900x600 dsc03773 0 8

By Brian McGeehan at Montana Angler Fly Fishing

No fly-fishing trip to Montana is complete without a visit to Yellowstone National Park. The world’s first national park, established by an act of the U.S. Congress in 1872, is as iconic for its wild trout populations as it is for its geysers, bison and grizzly bears. Anglers visiting Yellowstone have a broad variety of waters to fish, with backcountry outings offering some of the most exceptional fishing in the park.

The Yellowstone backcountry encompasses an incredible diversity of fishing opportunities within its 3,468 square miles, including alpine lakes, spring creeks, broad rivers and tumbling streams. The Yellowstone River alone provides countless angling opportunities as it flows from its headwaters in the Thorofare region to...

I recently enjoyed reading and shared a brief review of "Fly Fishing Evolution: Advanced Strategies for Dry Fly, Nymph, and Streamer Fishing" by George Daniel. As mentioned in my review, this is a great read for the advanced angler looking for new ideas on improving their game.

As a big fan of George and all the work he does for the sport this book is another fine addition to that contribution. You will be able to find George this winter presenting at the Fly Fishing Shows in Edison and Lancaster. You can sign up for his news letter at his website Livinonthefly.

I have been provided a brand new hard copy of "Fly Fishing Evolution: Advanced Strategies for Dry Fly, Nymph, and Streamer Fishing." I’m going to be...

Maine 2023 Mountains -> Salt

All-

I've been debating posting about my most recent trip to Maine, and how I wanted to share it for a little bit now. I finally decided to actually write up a quick story of the trip, the planning and the results. Don't expect a stream report, but more of an anecdote

Back in 2022, I went on a dedicated fishing trip with a buddy up to Maine in September. I'd been to Maine twice before with my wife, and fished albeit sparingly compared to a typical fishing trip.

It was the first time we both had gone up together to fish for brook trout, we hired a guide and got after it. Hundreds of cast, more than a handful of flies lost, and miles of streams hiked, we really immersed ourselves in the fishing up in Maine. We had plenty of success, after all the finicky brown trout of PA gave us some good practice before we tried our hand at the brook trout in Maine. Countless fish that would be personal best in PA were plentiful.

After a tough day of fishing for myself, where I definitely lost...
