Top Fall Fishing Spots in the Poconos

Sep 27, 2019

Autumn in the Poconos is one of the most beautiful seasons, especially for those who like to be outdoors. The mornings are crisp and cool, yet the afternoons are filled with balmy sunshine. The colorful leaves on the trees make the perfect backdrop — particularly for those who love to fish in the early morning hours.

At Skytop Lodge, guests will find that some of the best fall fishing spots in the Poconos are located right onsite. However, there are many other fall fishing spots nearby to check out. Here are a few to consider for your fall getaway to the Poconos: 

Promised Land State Park

Many visitors who head to the Poconos in the fall find that Promised Land State Park is the ideal place to spend the day fishing. This park allows year-round fishing, and it’s possible to catch yellow perch, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and even catfish. While the lake is a haven for trout, it’s important to note that trout season wraps up over Labor Day weekend. Visitors should not catch or keep trout in the fall.

The Lake at Skytop Lodge

Guests who want to enjoy a beautiful, private fishing setting in a convenient location will be thrilled to find out that they can fish onsite at the Lake at Skytop Lodge. Rates for fishing at the lake are affordable and vary based on the amount of time you want to spend fishing. Guests can visit the Outfitters to make their reservations. In addition to traditional fishing, guests also can book a fly-fishing experience on the lake which includes instruction and practice time.

Mauch Chunk Lake Park

Shoreline fishing is available at Mauch Chunk Lake Park. This lake offers different fish than some of the other nearby fall fishing spots, such as muskie, bluegill, and walleye.
