Guided Tours

Pocono Mountain Magic, The Famous Upper Delaware River, and Lehigh River Love

The Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania offer some of the states most unique trout fisheries. In the Pocono's we have both small and large freestone streams, spring influenced creeks, and tailwaters - all offering a unique fishing experience for the angler. Here, we can hike up a tiny creek and cast big dries to gorgeous native brook trout. We can fish a slightly larger creek for both native brook trout and wild browns. Or, we can cast to rising trout in a slightly larger freestone river setting. The Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania are beautiful, and I'm honored to guide throughout them.

The Delaware River is one of the most famous tailwater/freestone influenced wild trout fisheries in the world. Every year I host clients from around the globe that come to seek out it's insane bug hatches and big wild brown and rainbow trout. The freaking bugs of the Delaware River mixed with hard fighting wild rainbows and large wild brown trout make this place a damn angler's heaven! But! Don't be fooled, for the Delaware isn't going to give up her trout easily. It's a sought after fishery and it's trout grow adapted to that.

The Lehigh River is another tailwater in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania that I've grown to love! It's turbulent, tea stained water holds some amazing trout, both rainbow and wild brown trout! The Lehigh River has been on a massive rebound since the mining industry and every year we're seeing healthier trout and more prolific bug hatches. It's also a little warmer here as opposed to the Upper Delaware River, offering a little longer fishing season.

These rivers and streams are home to me and it's an understatement to say I'm in love with them. They're so unique, beautiful, and not to mention fishy!
