Summer is a great time to fly fish the Allegheny National Forest region for Native Brook Trout. With the National Forest holding over 700 miles of fishable trout water you don't have to go far to find peace and freedom on a quite brookie stream. Short rods and large terrestrial patterns work best, if you use larger flies it keeps the small fish off the hook. If small stream fishing isn't your cup of tea, the Allegheny River will become fishable, below the Kinzua Dam as the spring rains move out and the summer season moves in. The best way to fish the Allegheny is from a drift boat. We hope to see you on the water this summer season.
