Lehigh River Outting - Sep.xx, 2022 <- stop back for updated date


Here's a great opportunity to get out on the river for a day of Autumn Fly Fishing for trout with the club. The season has been a tough one with either excessive flows or water temperatures. Let's make up for it with a great day of fishing together. We'll meet at the Bownmanstown Boat Ramp between 9am.

Brodhead in the Fall - Oct. xx, 2022 <- stop back for updated date


Join us for an Autumn outing on the Brodhead. We'll meet up for lunch around noon at the park just before the 191 Bridge. Should be a great day out for fishing together. (A little secret to share. PFBC Torut Stocking is scheduled for Oct ??) Should make for a great day on the creek as so many just don't fish the fall stocking. Note: Bring you own lunch and figure on arriving at 9am.

Cast and Blast Outing at Tuscarora Lake - Oct xx, 2022 <- stop back for updated date


Join us for our annual Cast and Blast....we'll meet up at the lake parking lot around 9 AM. We will the head out to the field for a morning (or full day, your preference!) of hunting pheasant.  Will relocate back to the lake for a lunch break and can fish the afternoon.  If you're not a hunter, no worries!  Head to the boat launch to meet up in the morning and, rather than heading to the field, just start fishing!  It's a great time, whether you choose to hunt all day, fish all day, or do the traditional split of both!  See you there.  (Be sure you have your hunting license, if you plan to hunt)




Check the PA Fish Commision Website. There may be only 1 statewide opening day like last year.
