Pennsylvania’s Finest Fly Fishing
The 1,500 acres of Glendorn is home to Fuller Brook- a crystal clear, spring-influenced freestone stream. Fuller Brook offers the Pennsylvania fly fisher nearly three miles of privately managed trout angling ranging from Native Brook trout on the Robbers Nest Branch and Jill Lake Branch to a mix of Browns, Rainbows and Brookies on the main stream.
Annual hatches and beginner-friendly fishing offer the best of both worlds for experienced and novice fly-fishers alike. The West Branch of the Tunagawant Creek, or, as we call it, “The Tuna” is an additional mile and half of trophy trout stream.
Glendorn also has three trophy trout ponds with all the challenges of still water angling.
Drift Boat & Jet Boat Trips
It is mesmerizing hearing the splashing of the waves on the side of one of our Clakacraft Drift Boats as we float on the Clarion and Allegheny Rivers, both of which are classified as National Scenic Rivers. On your float, you frequently see eagles, ducks, and sometimes the elusive black bear along with a wide array of other birds and wildlife. In the middle of all this scenery and great fly-fishing your guide will stop on a secluded river island to set up and cook a gourmet shore lunch. After your island lunch, we will float the remainder of either of these great American rivers searching for the fish of a life time.
Our fully equipped 18′ Starcraft Jet Boat allows us to move our anglers up and down the river and enable us access to endless miles of incredible fly fishing water!
Seasonal mayfly hatches for brown and rainbow trout. Clarion River fishes best in April – early June. Allegheny River can fish great year-round depending on the outflow below the dam.
Opportunities for warm water species including musky, pike, smallmouth bass, and carp.
Offsite Fishing Expeditions
Our guides pack a shore lunch, load their fly boxes with flies and greet you with a smile at Fuller Brook Outfitters ready to lead you on a trout fishing journey on one of many streams in the Pennsylvania Wilds. We eat, sleep and live to fish and want to share our knowledge with you. We hope we can pass on our enthusiasm in this sport and fill your days landing trout, steelhead or any other fish you’d care to catch.
Located a short drive from The Lodge at Glendorn, enjoy our newest tract of land, Spring Creek property. Nestled in the wooded, rolling hills of Northwestern Pennsylvania, Spring Creek is designated as a Class ‘A’ Wild Trout Stream by the state of Pennsylvania. This exquisite section of stream has been left in its natural state, leaving it pure and pristine. The stream has been blessed with populations of wild brown trout and brook trout. Seldom seen, these trout have grown to be wary and will humble even the most skilled fly angler. However, that is not to say they cannot be caught. With its wide variety of hatches and an abundance of mayflies, midges, caddis and stoneflies, this is truly a flyfisher’s dream.
Seasonal steelhead opportunities exist for the fly angler from October through April. Steelhead fishing is beginner-friendly for casting and the average Steelhead can weigh between six and ten pounds. Quite often, lake-run brown trout and Coho salmon are caught mixed in with the steelhead. For many years flyfishing magazines have christened this fishery “Steelhead Alley”.
