Yough River Trout and Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Yough River C&R Trout Fishing Area

Last Sunday I fished the Yough River C&R Trout Fishing Area to try out some terrestrial cricket patterns. The river was quite low, but the first deeper pool I fished brought a nice rainbow to the surface for an explosive hit on the cricket (Picture 1). Recently I fished the river with Inland Fisheries Director Don Cosden and his wife Susie, and we had a great day. We caught about a dozen trout between us, Don landed a gorgeous 17 inch rainbow (Pictures 2 and 3) while Susie caught a nice 14 inch brown trout plus a lot of smallmouth bass (Picture 4). A great brown trout was also recently caught by Sang Run Outfitters fishing guide Larry Teets in the Yough C&R Area, this big brown measured in at 26 inches, and was Larry’s personal best on the Yough (Picture 5).
