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

Action has been best on nymphs and streamers. A handful of ISO along with caddis and small BWO are around if you want to try a dry fly. Nymphing has been most productive. Streamers will move fish. Use long leaders and light tippet.
