The Laurel Highlands has miles of great PA trout fishing streams, creeks, rivers, and runs.


One look at our miles and miles of stocked and wild trout waters, pristine lakes, and expansive rivers, and you’ll see why fishermen of all sorts flock to the Laurel Highlands. Pennsylvania has more miles of trout streams than any state in the contiguous United States, and Somerset County has more approved trout streams than any other county in the state.

Whether you prefer to cast your reel from a boat and the shore or you’d rather wade in deep, you’ll find a peaceful spot where the fish are biting. Skilled experts and beginners alike can head out with seasoned guides that are eager to share their tips and tricks. Go on float trips, and learn to fly fish, or cast out in a quiet space on your own or with family and friends. Head to our fee-fishing trout farms where you are guaranteed to catch a fish.
