River Camping & Backpacking
Spend 1.5 Days along the Little Schuylkill and Kayak to remote waters and Fly Fish for Trout. Our top of the line Sit-On-Top Kayaks can ride shallow water and handle the twists and turns of The Little Schuylkill. On this trip, we will have our waders on and kayak to amazing runs full of Wild Trout. These runs flow through Private Property and are otherwise unable to be fished via hiking. So, jump in the kayak and float down to these remarkable stretches with scenic waters
Throw your waders in your backpack, bring some extra socks, spare clothes, and check our What to Bring Page for an awesome backpacking trip along one of our Select Trout Waters. The Little Schuylkill is our favorite backpacking stream as some of its private stretches reveal sheer rock cliffs, beautiful scenery, total seclusion, and amazing waters filled with Wild Trout.
