Trout Fishing Pennsylvania
With more than 83,000 miles of streams and rivers, along with 4,000 inland lakes and ponds covering 160,000 acres the state of Pennsylvania offers plenty of water in which to fish for trout. As a matter of fact, Pennsylvania is where I learned how to fish for trout.I've since followed the fish that I fell in love with while living in PA to the trout fishing state of Montana. My fishing mentor taught me many of the techniques that are going to be discussed in this article on the banks of rivers and streams in the great state of Pennsylvania.
Trout fishing Pennsylvania is really quite good. Whether you prefer lake or river fishing for trout, PA can accommodate you. In PA the opening day of trout season is almost as much of an event as the opening day of deer hunting season (although nothing can beat the opening day of deer hunting in PA!).
The lakes and rivers of central Pennsylvania, where I grew up, were packed with anglers in search of trout on the opening day of trout season. Because we spent so much time trout fishing in PA, my mentor created the original bait pouch for carrying his trout bait (especially worms).At the time, the bait pouch was simply a cut off end of an old sock. Today there are much more functional versions available, but if you don't want to buy one, just cut off an old sock! In any case, PA is where this ingenious way of carrying trout bait (especially worms) was born.
Another trout fishing technique that was born while trout fishing Pennsylvania was the use of gang hooks. Gang hooks are simply a pair of small hooks tied in tandem. The concept is quite simple, yet extremely effective. Why? Mostly because gang hooks allow the angler to present a live worm in a completely natural manner.
In fact, when rigged on a set of gang hooks, hooks are barely even noticeable to the human eye. This is obviously an incredible advantage to the angler and much better than using a single size 4 hook with a worm "threaded" onto it.
Although I now use gang hooks all over the country, as far as I'm concerned they will always be inexorably linked to Pennsylvania trout fishing. Trout fishing in PA is probably some of the best trout fishing in the entire United States. Montana has Pennsylvania beat, but I think that's simply because there are so many less people, rather than the trout fishery itself.
If you've never considered Pennsylvania to be a trout fishing state, it's time that you should. Pennsylvania trout fishing is as good as can be found almost anywhere. Although it's surely not my cup of tea, the state of Pennsylvania also has some excellent fly fishing from what I understand. So if you happen to be into waving feathers back and forth in the air, Pennsylvania can accommodate you as well. In many ways, PA is a trout anglers paradise.
