Brook Trout Retreat: 2011

Greg Senyo’s PA Trout Retreat
Over the past 11 days Greg Senyo and I had the pleasure of hosting three groups of anglers at Greg’s brook trout paradise in the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania. Plenty of larger than average brookies were hooked, lost and landed. What a trip!

Group 1 Dave, Len, Dick & Bill
This is what we came for! Allegheny Brookies

Gotta love the dry dropper!

After seeing the previous days photos Dave, Len and Bill unpacked pretty quick

Several Michigan Ale’s were consumed during our time in PA

The first group had ideal conditions… The creek was dropping after a short highwater period and sunshine was non existant for nearly three straight days. The overcast conditions worked in our favor.

Group 2 Jesse, Tyler, Gary & Ralph demonstrating the Brookie “Game Face”
After 4 days of overcast conditions and rain group 2 rolled into town with sunshine in tow.

Tyler scores his first trout on a Scott A3 3wt. The cork will never be the same!

Can you tell who sold them their gear?

Flip scores the “Bridge” fish! We had a bounty on this one for nearly 10 days.

After a night of heavy rain fall the river was down to 12″ of viz. It sure helped the streamer bite.

Greg and I plan on hosting several of these trips next spring.

The lodging and fishing is limited to 4 anglers per group
