There are quite a few of those Pennsylvania Boys on this site, but you'll need to offer up a case or two of Yuengling to get them to talk...;)

Western PA is a pretty big and diverse place and depending upon where you are, the options available to you within the 1 to 1.5 hour travel time you're looking for can vary considerably. So, a general location from you would be helpful and would probably result in better advice. We don't need a street address, just a general neck of the woods. If you don't want to give this information on the open board, PM me. Unless you're in the greater Pittsburgh area, I can probably help. There really isn't any help for Pittsburgh people....:) j/k...

I live in northwest Pa. Neshannock creek has a delayed harvest section at Volant and there is a fly shop there. Cool spring creek at Mercer also has a delayed harvest section. I catch a lot of trout on both streams. Contact me in the spring and I'd be glad to show you some nice water.

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
