On the Allegheny National Forest, we offer the angler a variety of fishing opportunities, from small native brook trout streams to trophy fishing for musky, pike and walleye in the Allegheny Reservoir.

A valid Pennsylvania fishing license is required to fish on the Allegheny National Forest. Seasons vary according to species. Consult PA State Fishing Regulations.

The Allegheny National Forest provides some of the finest warm water fishing in northwestern Pennsylvania. Several reservoirs and over 500 miles of pristine streams offer outstanding fishing opportunities. The Allegheny reservoir (a 12,000 acre impoundment on the Allegheny River) is the largest reservoir on the Forest. Fish species found in the Reservoir include smallmouth bass, muskellunge, walleye, northern pike, yellow perch, channel catfish and some brown trout. Tributary streams flowing into the Reservoir, as well as the streams located throughout the Forest, offer excellent cold-water fishing experiences. Some streams are stocked with brook, brown and rainbow trout while others have natural populations of brook trout.
