Pennsylvania’s Cumberland Valley is world-renowned for its limestone trout streams. Most famous of them all is arguably the Yellow Breeches Creek. Inflows of many small mountain stream tributaries and huge springs such as those Huntsdale and Boiling Springs which originate deep within limestone bedrock keep the Breeches flowing at cool, trout-friendly temperatures all year-round. The “Catch and Release” special regulations area of the Breeches courses through the Allenberry Resort grounds and ensures that there are always numerous trout to fish over. A great mix of stocked brown, rainbow, and brook trout supplement a healthy population of wild brown trout. Seasonal hatches of midges, early brown stoneflies, assorted caddis and an abundance of mayflies, such as Hendricksons, blue wing olives, Sulphurs, assorted Cahills and the famous White fly, bring trout to the surface to feed and offer classic opportunities to match the hatch! A season’s worth of ants and beetles also feed our trout throughout the temperate months.
Allenberry guests are invited to walk down to the creek from the north bank or engage an experienced fly fishing guide to learn more about the sport and explore other reaches of the stream. The Letort and several other great Trout waters flow nearby, making Allenberry a great headquarters for regional trout fishing.
