Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Our trout trips begin in early April in both NW and NC Pennsylvania. There are no shortage of stream options available to us, but we tend to stick to a few different watersheds that our guides have extensive knowledge on and produce quality fishing experiences. The spring season is a great time to get out and shake off some of the cabin fever after the long winter, and trout hungrily feed on hatches that perk up once the weather starts to warm. In April and May we split our time on streams near our home base of Franklin, PA and the Central PA streams. Where we go each day depends on what our guests want! The waterways around Franklin have a nice mix of stocked and wild fish, and there's no shortage of areas to explore.
Once June hits, a majority of trips head to the center part of the state since those drainages stay cooler and provide outstanding fishing well into summer! We're always mindful of stream temperatures, but they typically stay at fishable levels through June in the areas we guide. This is the time for dry flies and there's nothing better than watching wild trout rise up to inhale a fly off of the surface! It's not terribly uncommon to catch a rainbow, brown, and brook trout all in the same day! As the calendar turns to July, stream temperatures can become an issue, but in mild summers the fishing remains good through most of the month and our trips continue to head for the cooler areas.
Regardless of where and when our guests decide to go on their trip, we're happy to recommend several lodging options nearby that make for a wonderful total experience. Whether it's a weekend getaway to Venango County or a multi-day fishing trip to Central PA, we can tailor each trip to best suit your wants and make sure that you have an unforgettable trip with us!
