Fishing the Hatch in High Water Conditions with Dale

Our new fishing guide: John Hatcher

Ohiopyle Fly Fishing Report – April

With mostly high waters in 2018 season fish were left pretty well untouched. The spoils come to those who are patient! Early spring hatches here in Ohiopyle are coming off quickly, trout are sipping nymphs and we’re already seeing some really nice rises to dry’s.

So, if you’ve got a touch of cabin fever and want to take advantage of the better weather give us a call and we’ll get you on some fish!

Spring Special

Purchase $20 or more in flies from the outfitter shop and get a free Rep Your Water PA sticker while supplies last!

Look forward to seeing you on the water!

I had a day fly fishing with Ryan McCauley. Ryan started the day giving me a very informative lesson. We went over fly fishing basics and then went into a detailed conversation about flies, equipment and fishing strategy. Next we practiced casting which allowed me to compare my equipment to some really good stuff they had for demo. After a great lunch at the cafe next door, we started out on the stream. The stream and scenery were so cool. Ryan had a great spot. This was lunker city. Trout were everywhere. I caught two and just missed a few more. I can't ask for more than a trip that was geared to my needs and worked out this well.
