The Trout Turnpike
There’s a 33-mile stretch of route 872 that crawls up through the Pennsylvania Wilds running hand-in-hand with the First Fork of Sinnemahoning Creek. It’s lined with ample pull-offs and seemingly endless fishing spots from the manicured railings and benches at the Stevenson Dam to unmarked honey holes you can’t reach without a hiking stick and a decent amount of snake knowledge. It’s my Trout Turnpike. And once you’ve been on it, you’re never truly off it.
