Fly Fishing Dyberry Creek Pennsylvania
Dyberry Creek is a tributary of the Lackawaxen River
located in northeast Pennsylvania. It's a heavily stocked
stream that offers good early and late season fly fishing
opportunities. Fly fishing Dyberry Creek can be a fun
filled experience with a variety of opportunities.
The upper sections consist of two branches - the East
Branch and the West Branch. The East Branch of
Dyberry Creek flows out of Lower Woods Pond into the
West Branch six miles downstream from the lake. It's a
very small, narrow stream. There are some wild brook
and a few wild brown trout in the upper sections. Alder
Marsh Brook is a small tributary of the East Branch. Both
it and the East Branch have native brook trout.
The banks of the stream are solid with trees and much
of the stream stays cool most of the year. In the hotest
part of the Summer, fishing can slow down.
Access is good. State Roads #4007 and #1023 are
parallel to the East Branch and there is ample parking
along the way. The West Branch of Dyberry Creek is
also a small stream. Access is provided by State Routes
#371, #4017 and #247. The West Branch has small
pools with riffles between them. It's very suitable for dry
fly fishing but you have to hike into most of the stream.
The West Branch has a small tributary called the Middle
Branch. It too, has native brook trout. The East and
West Branches join together at Tanners Falls to form
the main stem of Dyberry Creek.
The main stem of Dyberry Creek is much larger,
averaging as much as fifty feet wide in places. About a
mile south of Tanners Falls is the Delayed Harvest
Section. Fly fishing Dyberry Creek is best in this section.
It's fly fishing only water that runs from the Widmer
property line for eight tenths of a mile downstream to the
Mary Wilcox Bridge, or State Route #4009. The main
stem is accessible from State Routes #4006 and #191.
The stream has a very good population of aquatic
insects consisting of mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies and
midges. There are also a good population of minnow,
baitfish and some crayfish.
The season follows the general Pennsylvania trout
Springtime is the best time for fly fishing Dyberry Creek.
Summertime is okay in the upper and lower sections of
the river. The stream stays fairly cool during hot weather.
Fall is a great time to catch the large brown trout
Wintertime can be tough on the coldest days but
productive on warm days.
