I am a fully insured and licensed fishing guide in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania specializing in smallmouth bass and trout wading trips on the Allegheny River and Youghiogheny River in Western Pennsylvania. My primary focus is to educate my clients on the most effective tactics used to catch and safely release smallmouth bass, trout, and other species we may encounter during our wade trip. I know how and where to put you on fish, but in the end it's you trip and I'll do my best to accommodate your requests. These trips are CATCH, PHOTO, and RELEASE using barbless hooks and artificial lures only NO EXCEPTIONS. More

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.
