Things to Do on the Yellow Breeches

Yellow Breeches Creek system has a variety of recreational opportunities including:

  • Several lakes and ponds are used for boating, fishing, swimming and ice-skating
  • The famous Appalachian Trail traverses part of the watershed
  • Creek is great for bird-watching, fishing, paddling, tubing and sightseeing
  • Nearby state, county, and municipal parks and nature preserves also provide ample recreation


Be on the lookout for a variety of ducks and wading birds, warblers, wrens, woodpeckers, Cedar Waxwings, Golden-crowned Kinglets, and Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers.

Fly fishing

If fly fishing is your forte, Yellow Breeches Creek is an angler’s delight. The most popular catch and release section is a mile long and runs through Allenberry in Boiling Springs. Designated as a “Pennsylvania Scenic River”, Yellow Breeches never has a shortage of trout (mix of stocked and wild trout). Check the Yellow Breeches Creek fly-fishing report for current fishing conditions.
