The Youghiogheny River

Nestled in the valleys of the Laurel Mountains in southwestern Pennsylvania, lies one of the best kept secrets in the eastern United States, the Youghiogheny River.  It just happens to hold some MONSTER Rainbow and Brown Trout. The 9 mile stretch of water from the Youghiogheny Dam to Ohiopyle can be waded, floated or simply used for a relaxing raft trip.  

The spring and early summer months offers some excellent Mayfly hatches, as well as Cadis and many other varieties, which leads to some great top water action.  If you are a Nymph fisherman, the possibilities are bountiful as well!

Senior and expert guide Mike Steiner, leads the fishing program through the ORVIS endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, PA .

Nemacolin Woodlands sits just minutes away from the river.  It is one of the most luxurious resorts in the United States, and offers a world class SPA, gorgeous accommodations, nature trails, an exotic zoo, a casino, two professional golf courses, The Shooting Academy, private fishing waters, fine dining and much more.
