Trout Fishing Gear Guide for Pennsylvania Waters
The first episode of the spring trout fishing series starts with getting prepared for trout season in Pennsylvania. What are the basics when it comes to trout fishing gear? Must–haves like Berkley® Trilene® fishing line, Eagle Claw® bait hooks, and various sizes of removal split shot are all necessary to stock up on before opening day. Now is also a good time to upgrade your trout fishing rod to one that is compact and durable like the Ugly Stik® GX2. In addition, don’t forget to grab trout fishing lures like Rooster Tail® trout spinners and Berkley® soft baits.
If fly fishing is more your style, your trout fishing gear should have a variety of nymphs, streams and a selection of dry flies for the streams you most commonly fish. Generally, a 7 ½ to 9-foot 5wt fly rod is an ideal trout fishing set up for fishing most waters in the state. Match it with 5X to 7X tippet and you will be ready for spring trout fishing.
