Question by Allison S: Places to go on a fishing trip in pennsylvania, ohio, or west virginia?
i would like to take my dad on a fishing trip next spring/summer. i was wondering if there were any lakes to go fishing on in western pennsylvania, eastern ohio, or north western west virginia. preferably a lake where we won’t run into a lot of people. also, if there’s a place where you can rent a fishing boat nearby, that would be nice. 🙂
any other tips on what to bring or anything like that would be helpful.
Answer by Frank Lake Erie is in NW PA, although it may be crowded.
I continue to explore the fantastic rivers of Virginia. In September, I took a trip to Mossy Creek (public stretch) – which was incredibly hard work but rewarding. I then explored the upper reaches of the Alma access on the South Fork Shenandoah to catch the end of season for Smallies. With trout season upon us in Western Virginia, I headed out for some ‘urban’ fishing on the South River (Waynesboro) – and some wild Brook trout fishing on the Rapidan in the Shenandoah National Park. Hopefully the pictures/vid does justice to the wonderful rivers of Virginia.Get out and fish there’s plenty to look at! Video Rating: 5 / 5
