Fishing at the Lehigh River - Escape and Make This Your Mountain Retreat!
Located in northeastern Pennsylvania, the Lehigh River originates in a series of glacial bogs and marshes in the area of Pocono Peak Lake in the Gouldsboro area about 15 miles southeast of Scranton. It is a significant sub-basin within the Delaware River watershed. As it works it way through Thornhurst, a siginificant section runs through Riverside Estates, a private community with great access to the river. And the fishing is amazing.
The Lehigh River supports a diverse fishery that includes trout, smallmouth bass, muskellunge, catfish, and American shad. Brookies, Brownies, and Bows abound. The water quality improvements have also fostered more habitat for the aquatic insects that are so important for the health of the fishery. Flyfishing wading is no easy task on the Lehigh but who doesn't enjoy a good challenge? For more details visit www.fish.state.pa.us.
