Troutbitten Featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

on
March 12, 2018
My friend, Steve, texted me yesterday to ask if I knew that my name was in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette sports section. Since my mediocre Little League baseball career ended at twelve years old, I’d figured that my chances at making the sports section of any paper were shot. But to my surprise, there it was, both online and printed in the Sunday paper. And I have to admit that it makes me smile. I grew up reading the PPG, and I still do. As a home grown western Pennsylvania boy, I follow my Steelers, Penguins and Pirates with devotion.

Troutbitten Guided Fly Fishing Trips

on
February 27, 2018

Where do you want to go?  What do you want to learn?  What do you want to catch?

I offer guided fly fishing trips to the storied waters of Central and North Central Pennsylvania: Spring Creek, Penns Creek, Little Juniata River, Fishing Creek, Clarion River, Kishacoquillas Creek, Bald Eagle Creek, First Fork of the Sinnemahoning, Slate Run, Pine Creek and more.

This area of Pennsylvania is full of wild brown trout and native brook trout. Each river has its own mystery, its own gifts and its own set of challenges.

The limestone streams of Central Pennsylvania provide consistent flows all year long. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, the constant flows of limestone springs offer a nutrient rich, stable habitat for trout and year-round opportunities for fly fishers. All of these rivers feature catch and release regulations for much of their length.

The freestone rivers of North Central Pennsylvania are mostly high gradient, tumbling waters. Action and opportunities are less consistent, but the wild brown trout are sometimes larger. The brook trout strongholds of this region provide an isolated adventure in the back country of Pennsylvania state forests.
