Fly Fishing : Wade Trips

Walk & Wade Trips:

Walking and wading through one of Pennsylvania's streams will give you the most detailed understanding of that particular watershed. The slow-paced nature of these trips gives us time to focus on every possible water type to find where fish are holding and feeding on that day. 

Bear and Sun Outdoors is licensed and permitted to guide on a wide variety of the state's waterways, lakes, and a few private access points. Together we will decide on a location based on current conditions and targeted species.

  • Maximum Participants: Two Anglers per Guide Note - If you have a bigger group it will require additional guides. This is based on providing the client with the best possible experience, so we maintain a 2:1 (client-to-guide) ratio 
  • Species: Trout and Smallmouth trips available.
  • Locations: Together we will decide on a location based on current conditions, targeted species, and Angler's experience.

Rates: Per Guide

- One Angler 1/2 Day (4 Hours) = $300

Additional Angler +$25

- One Angler Full-Day (8 hours) = $375

Additional Angler +$50
