The Youghiogheny River was designated River of the Year by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources in 2008. And our front yard is THE BEST fishing spot on the Yough River. We are located at the tailwaters of the dam and the river is well stocked with brook, rainbow and brown trout. Fly and bait fishing are popular. You may find competition with the locals though, local bald eagles that is. River otters, mink, and ospreys also call this river home. Fly fisherman might also want to check out Laurel Hill Creek and Meadow Run.
