These photos highlight some of the fish we have been catching. Southwestern Pennsylvania has been churning out the big fish for the last few years, with this year being one of the better in recent memory. These fish have been caught on a variety of different nymph and dry-fly patterns. (Notice that I did not say streamers.) I really think the Yough is sneaking up the ladder of must-fish rivers on the East Coast, and these fish are the reason why.
By the way, the name of the river is pronounced yock-i-gay-nee. Most folk call it “The Yock.”
