and can be worth the effort. Walk down the old railroad bed south
of Glen Park. The McMichaels Creek with its easy access
and abundance of fish. Pocono Creek has limited access and a section
with special regulations. Try the Bushkill a little later on
in the season and into early summer for its best fishing.
Bushkill is also the best spot for stream fly fishing in
the section owned by the Boy Scouts of America. A special permit
is required from the Council.

of the Delaware River which sports the "Best Wild Trout
