Penn's Creek Description

With 35 miles of trout water, Penn’s Creek is Pennsylvania’s longest limestone trout stream. Many people associate Penns Creek with Penns Cave--Pennsylvania’s only water cavern, where tourists glide through the dripping darkness in long, metal, motor-powered boats. The stream exiting the cave, called “Upper” Penns Creek, is small--averaging 15 to 30 feet wide. This is the coldest section of Penns Creek. ...

Techniques & Tips

Look for BWO's and midges to bring fish up. Fishing has been best early and late in the day. Nymphs and streamers are the way to go. Nymphing has been most productive small mayfly nymphs and stoneflies are the ticket. Streamers will move those browns.
