As a professional fishing guide and founder of Smallies on the Yough LLC., I have years of experience and knowledge that I bring to every trip. My personalized trips are designed to give you the best possible fishing experience on the Allegheny and Youghiogheny Rivers. I believe that your fishing guide should be someone who can offer you not only a great catch, but also scenic beauty and fishing techniques that can be passed on to future generations.

Myself and my 2 boys (11 & 14) went out with Pete on the Yough for an afternoon of wade fishing. The water was low and clear, so I was skeptical we'd find fish, but never doubt Pete's knowledge of the river. He got us into fish, even with my 2 sons who aren't really big fisherman, but had a blast. He was great with teaching them casting and technique and made believers of them on how fun it can be. Super easy guy to talk to and ask questions, can BS with you on a ton of subjects too in between tight lines. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to learn about smallmouth bass or probably any type of freshwater fishing in PA. 5* for sure. Hope to get out again soon with Pete.
