There are a number of creeks within 15 minutes of town: Indian Creek, Meadow Run, Morgan’s, Jonathan and Bruner Run. These are all rain-based, but are paddlable on a regular basis.

I want to know about Fly Fishing in the Ohiopyle area

Glad you asked! We are on the banks of the Yough which has seen a dramtic improvement in the fishery over the last 20 years. We have Grannom Caddis and Green Drake hatches, just for starters. Make sure to check out what’s hatching and the Yough stream conditions so you can be ready when you arrive. We have a great selection of flies and useful Orvis gear in the shop. We have a talented corps of fishing guides who are floating around and happy to provide you with some knowledge. Or why play with fate?
