Paddle Fishing

In Pennsylvania, we are blessed with opportunities not only to boat, but also to boat and find fantastic fish. Fishing on the Yough is world class. The cooler, calmer river from the Yough Dam outflow equals fish city! Stocked frequently, this section is as filled with beauty as it is with trout. As far as accolades, the PA Fish and Boat Commission listed the Yough as the second best trout river in PA. You can also get great catches when you cast up in Erie. Fish the lake and find trophy walleye. Whether you’re with a company such as Ohiopyle Trading Post or Wilderness Voyageurs up in Ohiopyle, or whether you’re renting a boat and going for it yourself on the Youghiogheny, PA has plenty of opportunities to catch gills!
