hello everyone! I have not been on the forum in many years, busy raising young people who are now on their own paths. So glad to see that it is as great as ever! I am looking for a location where I can hike in with my pack, fish for two or three hours, make lunch, and then fish for another three or four hours and hike out before dark. I am from Lancaster, but a 90 minute drive in whatever direction is just fine with me. Do any of you have any ideas? I drove up to Swatara State Park last week and some of the back waters (not trout run) seemed promising, but mapping access was a real challenge when I got home. Also, there are several very small streams that seem to tail up through the hills and possibly run through state game lands @ Elizabethtown Road (241). Have any of you battled through the brush up that way and fished those streams? I would be shocked if that water does not hold brook trout. Thanks for any advice! really appreciate all of you!
