Spring Fishing at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

As I am looking out of the window at the snow falling at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort's Field Club, (we received about 6" overnight), I can only think about one thing… Trout Fishing!

The Spring months (March and April) in my opinion offer some of the best Pennsylvania fly fishing of the year.  As air and water temperature begin to warm, our local trout streams begin to come to life.  After a long, hard winter of conserving energy, hungry trout start feeding more aggressively.  Usually we are focusing our attentions sub surface using streamer patterns and multiple nymph patterns.  However, early season can be a nymph fisherman’s dream as hungry trout key in on active mayflies and stoneflies.  You never know when you may run into an early season hatch and find fish feeding on the surface, presenting the opportunity for some Dry Fly action.

Weather and water can be unpredictable early in the fly fishing season, but I have had some of my best days guiding when conditions were less than ideal.  The early season is a great way to get dialed back in, knock the rust off and warm up for things to come.

If you are planning a trip to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort this spring and are itching to wet a line, contact the Nemacolin Field Club to schedule some time on the water.  Along the way we will have fun, enjoy the outdoors, learn a little, and try to catch some fish!

Just remember a bad day of fishing is always better than a good day at work! P.S. - Just look at all the smiles in the Fish pictures.
