Penns Creek

General Description

Penns Creek is Pennsylvania’s largest, and longest spring creek. Bubbling from a cave located about 15 miles east of State College, the stream stays modest in size until it reaches Spring Mills where it is joined by Sinking Creek. At this point, Penns Creek becomes a proper creek in size, and an excellent trout stream for wild and stocked brown trout, as well as stocked rainbows.

To many anglers, Penns Creek means Green Drakes. The big, floppy mayflies appear in tremendous numbers in late May and early June and attract crowds of anglers to the stream.

Canoeing on Penns Creek is possible in early spring, but since this is a favorite spot of fishermen, it may be best to paddle other waters after the opening of trout season in mid April.
