Although the summer heat is upon us, trout fishing is still alive and well!

Having spent the day fly fishing Valley Creek in Valley Forge National Park, I noticed the native browns are enjoying being left alone. There was not another fisherman in sight all day! Wading 3 or 4 hundred yards of crystal clear cool water (62 degrees) I was able to enjoy some moderate action. Valley Creek is a limestone stream and home to wild brown trout. It is a no-kill, non stocked stream with good current, many small pools and heavy overhang in some areas. As the browns are wild, your presentation has to be spot on. So, if your looking for a good place to spend a summer day trout fishing, give Valley Creek a try!
