Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Lackawaxen River
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing on Lackawaxen
Creek. There are some anglers that prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier
nymphs and streamers.
Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from nine feet up to twelve feet in length are suggested.
Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list above.
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. That will

We recommend "Perfect Flies" because they are the best flies you can purchase. They have
been tested in all the trout streams of Pennsylvania, including the Lackawaxen River. They are
not only the most realistic flies you can buy, they are the most effective ones you can use. You
will find the wild rainbow and brown trout to be very selective as to species of aquatic insects
they are feeding on. Matching the hatch is usually necessary to catch them consistently.
