Fishing Tips for Penns Creek

From its headwaters down to Coburn Penns Creek is home to a few trout but it isn’t really worth fishing. However starting at Coburn it intercepts the cold water of the Elk and Pine creeks and in enters into a 7 mile rift in crumpled up ridges where gradient increases and large riffles tail into deep pools. Here is where Penns Creek flexes its muscles and becomes one of the trout streams in the top 100 best trout streams in all the US. Once the creek turned river hits Poe Paddy Campground the fishing becomes catch and release only for the next four miles. This part of the river sees some of the least fishing pressure. The time when fishing pressure is at its peak is during the green drake hatches when tons of anglers from all around the east come for a chance at lots of nice trout. You may not want to try during the height of the hatch though because A the trout have tons of food and won’t take flies as readily and all those anglers. The best time to fish is when the hatch is just heating up or when it is dying down. If you want to you could also fishing the caddis hatch in mid to late April or when the sulphers hatch in mid to late June. Access is relatively easy because an old railroad turned hiking/biking trail borders the river for quite a ways and roads border the river for most of the rest of the way. The farther you go from the entrance to the trail the less and less fishing pressure the river receives. Good luck fishing!
