Fly Fishing Little Pine Creek
Little Pine Creek is a tributary of Pine Creek in North
Central Pennsylvania. It's formed by the confluence of
Blockhouse Creek and Texas Creek. Blacks Creek is a
small tributary of Blockhouse Creek. The stream has
native brook trout, wild brown trout and stocked browns
The stream is approximately fifteen miles long. It flows
into Pine Creek in the very deepest part of the Pine
Creek George, known locally as the Grand Canyon of
Pennsylvania. The confluence of Little Pine Creek and
Pine Creek is located near the village of Waterville. Fly
fishing Little Pine Creek is done mostly in the delayed
harvest section of the stream.
The delayed harvest section runs from two-hundred
yards downstream from Otter Run and ends at
Schoolhouse Hollow. It's just over a mile long stretch of
water but fly fishing is normally very good.
The "little" in Pine Creek's name is to separate it from its
big sister, Pine Creek; however, Little Pine isn't a very
small stream. It's as wide as forty feet in places. The
headwaters are mostly owned by a private fishing club.
The public section extends from just upstream English
Center to the Little Pine Creek dam.
It has a good population of wild browns and native
brooks in addition to the stocked trout. The stream
consist of runs, riffles and some large pools. Fly fishing
Little Pine Creek can be greatly effected by rain and
melting snow. You should always check the USGS water
levels before making an extended trip to fish Little Pine.
The season is the general Pennsylvania trout season.
Springtime is the best time for fly fishing Little Pine
Summertime is fine in most areas but you should keep
an eye on the water temperatures.
Fall is probably the best time for fly fishing Little Pine
Creek and a good time to catch the larger brown trout
Wintertime can be tough but on warm, nice days, the
fishing can be okay.
