Stony is a designated Pennsylvania Scenic River as it rolls from its headwaters to the State Game Lands. Fish for brook trout and brown trout in gorgeous, serene surroundings with no closed season. Many miles of the creek are on private lands, but the public access areas boast ample parking and stretches of quiet, wooded fishing spots.
Upstream of the dam at Stony Creek Inn, there is ample parking and many spots to set up to fish. The creek here is at its widest point, with many early-season stocked trout ready for a battle. Most fishing is done from the bank, as deep mud can be a challenge for waders. As the waters warm in the summer, fish will often migrate to colder water upstream.
Above the popular Inn & Dam area the creek winds through a stretch of private land before public access returns at the Stony Creek Railroad Path. Parking is also available here and the section holds both stocked and wild trout. Enjoy the scenic, wild surroundings as you fish along a popular biking and hiking path.
