Catfish, Musky & Walleye Fishing in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania fishing is much more than trout and bass

From the whiskers of catfish to the predacious teeth of the muskellunge, these trophy-size fish species can provide angling action rivaling that of saltwater fishing. With 50-inch muskies not uncommon and some of the lures used approaching the size of smaller trophy-sized fish, musky fishing is the stuff of legends. Catfish can provide an excellent fight and some great table fare. Walleye can require quite a bit of strategy when fishing, but preparation pays off with one of the tastiest fish. We’ve made your destination selection that much easier by offering the following waters.
