Nick Raftas / Wild East Outfitters
Wild East Outfitters is an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide Service offering guide services in eastern and central Pennsylvania. We have 5 guides offering float trips on the Lehigh River, Susquehanna River, Juniata River and some other float trip options for those looking to fish some lesser known waters available to the boat angler. Our drift boat guide season is split between the Lehigh, which is a trout river and the Susquehanna and Juniata which are both smallmouth bass fisheries. Our Lehigh guide season typically runs between March until late June and then resumes in late September and fishes good through the winter where we target some of the larger fish on big articulated streamers. Our smallmouth bass season typically runs from July until late September. We also offer walk and wade trips on a wide range of freestone and limestone streams from eastern Pennsylvania to central Pennsylvania. Some of the more well known streams we offer walk and wade guide services on are the Little Lehigh, Saucon Creek, Monocacy Creek, Brodhead Creek, McMichael's Creek, the Pohopoco Creek, Brandywine River, White Clay Creek, Tulpehocken Creek and many more. Our walk and wade guides are skilled fly tyers and well versed in hatches. They have the knowledge to teach you all about rigging for dry fly fishing, nymping, streamer fishing and wet fly/soft hackle fishing. We are a guide service that will tailor a trip to meet whatever you want to do. We offer the seasoned angler opportunities to throw dry flies and chase hatches or throw streamers to predatory brown trout but we also offer guiding services for beginning anglers who are just getting into the sport of fly fishing. We cater to all ability levels and we are kid friendly. We also occasionally provide guiding services for spin anglers for smallmouth bass but our primary focus is fly fishing and we plan to keep it that way. We also offer hosted destination trips to Patagonia, Montana, Michigan, Florida. Our hosted trips include lodging, guiding, food and rental vehicle and transportation. For more details on hosted trips get in touch with us and we will let you know what is next up for travel destinations. We pour our heart and souls into fly fishing and our guiding and you will be hard pressed to find a harder working guide service in the state of Pennsylvania which is why our clientele return time and time again to fish with us. Our calendars for the spring and summer typically fill up over the winter months so if you are looking to book a trip it is best to book early rather than wait until the last minute. In that case though, please don't let that stop you from contacting us as we are all very motivated fishing guides who will do our best to fit you in.With all of that said, please join us on the water to experience some of the great fishing that Pennsylvania has to offer. People travel to some very far away places to catch the fish of a lifetime that can be caught right here at home. Pennsylvania is right there at the top of the best fishing destinations in the United States. Get out and fish!
