Great Trough Creek

General Description

Great Trough Creek cuts through Terrace Mountain and empties into Raystown Lake. Stream fishing in Great Trough Creek provides anglers with opportunities to cast for trout, smallmouth bass, rock bass, sucker and panfish. Shad fish netting is becoming popular as these fish enter tributaries of Raystown Lake each spring to spawn.

There is a whitewater stretch of Class I-III rapids suitable for paddlers of medium experience. This section is not recommended for beginners without the aid of a more experienced paddler.

Access

Put-in: follow the signs to Trough Creek State Park from PA Route 994 — about 10 miles north of the town of Saxton. Cross a recently restored wooden arch bridge over Great Trough Creek. Take the first right after crossing the creek onto Trough Creek Drive which quickly becomes a gravel road. After a couple of miles, take the first right onto another gravel road (T-370); the put-in is ½ mile along this road.

Takeout: Retrace your path to the wooden bridge, cross over the creek and take the first right - this is still Trough Creek Drive. Follow this road past the campground to the parking area near the dam and the "ice mine".
