Chapter Spring Outing - Pennsylvania Spring Creeks
May 4-6, 2018 (Annual Trip)
LITU Members, you are invited to explore some of the most famous trout streams in Pennsylvania and the Eastern United States, all located near State College, PA. These are the home waters of countless fly fishing icons, including Joe Humphreys, George Harvey, George Daniel and more. This region is rich with world renowned trout waters such as Penns Creek, Spring Creek, Fishing Creek, and the Little Juniata, as well as lesser known gems like Elk Creek and White Deer Creek.
We will be staying at The Feathered Hook, Coburn, PA. There will be room for 17 fly fishers. The cost is $151.00 per person (double occupancy) and includes: 2-nights lodging, 2 breakfasts, and a $10 donation to LITU per person.
Dinner is not included and will not be organized as on previous trips. Elk Creek Café and other restaurants in Millheim are good choices if you want to stick close to The Feathered Hook, but there are plenty of additional options in State College and surrounding towns.
For more information, contact us.
The local fly shops (particularly George Daniel’s Livin’ on the Fly guides, TCO, and FFP) were very generous with their time and provided a great deal of information that helped us plan this trip. We strongly encourage your patronage of these shops on the Fall Outing and on other adventures to Central PA. As this is new water for a lot of us, we also encourage you to take advantage of their guide services.
