Near Boiling Springs, the Yellow Breeches Creek is well-known with regional trout fishermen due to the plentiful trout population. The Yellow Breeches Creek is arguably the most well-known fly fishing river in Pennsylvania and therefore pretty crowded from March through August. The mid-summer white fly hatch is surely not to be missed.

The most popular place for fly fishing the Yellow Breeches Creek is below the confluence of Boiling Springs Run, which brings alot of cold water from Boiling Spring Lake. There is a one mile catch-and-release zone starting at the confluence and ends downstream near Allenberry. The very crowded stretch of the Yellow Breeches Creek is not a place for a quiet day of fly fishing.

If you are looking for alittle peace, try the waters below Allenberry. They are still very productive all the way down to the Susquehanna River confluence.

Overall, Yellow Breeches Creek is the 32nd most popular fly fishing river of all 49 fly fishing spots in Pennsylvania.
