Typical Pennsylvania Fishing Lake

Trout Waters

You don't have to go far to find trout in PA. Many of the rivers, streams, small lakes and ponds hold trout. The major lakes offering trout fishing include Allegheny Reservoir , Blue Marsh Lake, Glendale Lake, Lake Erie, Lake Wallenpaupack and Raystown Lake. Watch trout fishing videos to see trout anglers in action.

The 5 primary trouts are the rainbow, brook, brown, cutthroat and lake trout. Browns are considered the most difficult to catch and brookies are the easiest. Pure cold water is key to survival of the trouts.
