Re: What's Happening in North Central / Central Pennsylvania?
Having someone here so that you can receive real time intelligence regarding runs, weather, and river conditions is priceless. What I can tell you about coming here to fish is a short story. Do not plan and book travel 6 months in advance. You may get a better price on an airfare but you must take what you get when you get here. Some people will be lucky and find great weather, good water levels and plentiful salmon. Sadly, many arrive to find less than optimum conditions on all fronts.
Being able to drop everything on a weeks notice and come here to fish is an option open for a select few but for many this is a once in a lifetime trip and being so you need to try to get everything right. I have had people come for as many as three weeks on one stay and during that time it never quit raining and they did not see the mountains because of the low ceiling. The rain made almost all rivers and creeks too high to fish and the trips were less than perfect. Even if you could only come for a 5 day turn around trip it would be better to come on short notice and have great weather and fishing for those days than to plan in advance, come for 2 weeks and get the shaft.
