Neshannock Creek

There are no products matching the selection.

Neshannock Creek, located in Western PA , has a 2.7 mile special regulation area running from the Dam in Volant downstream to the Covered Bridge. Neshannock Creek Fly Shop is located in the heart of Volant, directly at the start of the Delayed Harvest stretch. This freestone Stream is both a stocked and holdover fishery. In addition to the fish stocked by the state, Neshannock Creek Fly Shop and Trout Unlimited also contribute multiple stockings throughout the year. Many Rainbow and Browns in the 16” to 24” class are caught here every season. In addition to the trout, these creek also has some monster Pike and Smallmouth Bass. Neshannock Creek fishes well all year round, weather permitting. The dog days of summer can lead to low water and diprived oxygen levels, causing some fish, mainly trout, to die off. Some of the more prolific hatches include: Light Cahills, Grannoms, March Browns, Brown Drakes, Olive and Tan Caddis, BWO, and Sulphurs, among many others. Dry and wet or nymph patterns of all hatches mentioned work well, but small BWO and Blue Quill nymphs in sizes #16-#20, as well as Olive and Tan Caddis Larva in sizes #14-#18 are almost always a top choice. Woolly Buggers are always a good bet for streamers, as are various Crayfish imitations. Any choice of the Tandem and Trophy Streamers are a great option for Browns or Rainbows in the 18”+ class.
