 On the stream, you’ll learn about reading water and presentation as well as catching, playing, and releasing fish. Our classes are held along the banks of the Youghiogheny River and its tributaries. Spending two days fishing in this beautiful mountain setting with the expert guidance of our friendly staff makes for a truly memorable experience.

 You will arrive at the Wilderness Voyageurs’ Ohiopyle base at 9:30 each. We’ll start with a classroom session, focusing on equipment and insect life. Then time to head outdoors and work on your fly casting. Before you know it, you will be knee-deep in the water stalking those beautiful Youghiogheny Trout.
