Fly Fishing Tobyhanna Creek
Tobyhanna Creek is a Pocono Mountains stream that
flows from Tobyhanna Lake. It is fairly large averaging
about forty to sixty feet wide. Much of the stream runs
through the state game lands. The stream consist
mostly of pocket water above I-380. The elevation of the
creek is fairly high in that location, high enough that
Tobyhanna Lake freezes over in the winter. The stream
flows for about seven miles through State Game Land
127 and under I-380.
There is a Delayed Harvest Section, Artificial Lures
Only, one mile long that extends from the confluence of
Still Swamp Run, downstream to the Pennsylvania Power
service bridge. This area receives a fall stocking of
trout. It requires a hike to get to this area of water.
The middle section of Tobyhanna can be accessed
rather easily. Route 423 parallels the stream. On the
east side of I-380, State Game Land #127 has several
parking areas and a foot trail leads down to the stream. .
The season is year-round in the delayed harvest area
but regular season rules of mid April through February
Springtime is the best time to fish Tobyhanna Creek.
The fishing slows down some during the hottest part of
summer but still can be good.
As you can see in the pictures, Autumn is a beautiful
time to fish the stream.
Fish can be caught during the winter and can even be
good on warm days.
