Re: Pennsylvania Help needed
You won't find much public water on the Broadhead.
Best idea for the NEPA area is to get in touch with a local Fly Shop and let them steer you toward the best streams at the time that you're there. There are a large number of good trout steams in this area. In Blakeslee, try AA Outfitters; they really know the local waters.
AA Outfitters Fly Fishing - fly shop, fly rods, reels, fishing, gear
In NEPA, here are some suggestions:
Broadhead Creek (you have that one already)
Devil's Hole Creek
Big Bushkill Creek (at the Resica Falls Boy Scout camp)
If you like to bushwhack, then there are an almost unlistable number of tribs that fish very well; particularly for native Brookies. For example, try Stoney Run, where it empties into Broadhead Creek. Another would be Kistler Run, where it empties into Tobyhanna Creek. Still another would be Hickory Run, where it empties into Mud Run. Or Mud Run where it empties into the Little Lehigh River.
If you're in central PA, then don't miss the Little J. (Little Juniata); really nice trout fishery and with some good open public access points. Also, Penn's Creek is a really nice fishery.
