Fly, Rod and Reel. Fishing at The Shawnee Inn

April 24, 2015

If you’ve been to The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort you know there is more to us than golf. The biggest reason there is so much to do here? Our location, we not only sit at the foothills of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area but we are built on the bank of the Delaware River. So, besides for water activities like rafting, canoeing and kayaking one of our favorite recreational activities is fishing!

The Shawnee Inn offers Shawnee Fishing Trips with an experienced and certified PABC/NPS Fishing Guide. These trips can be tailored to exceed the expectations of any fishing angler from novice to expert and the Spring is the perfect time to get out on the river for your first fishing adventure of the season.

The Shawnee Inn sits in the perfect spot in the Spring when the American Shad run. Rising Spring temperatures cue this large fish which spends most of it’s life in saltwater to return to the freshwater in which it was born to spawn.

Opening day of Trout season also takes place in early Spring and is another popular fish which many head out and cast a line for early in the season. Fallfish, Small Mouth Bass, Walleye, Pickerel, Carp, Musky, Catfish and varieties of pan fish are also popular fish you may find at the end of your hook in the Spring and Summer.

Shawnee Fishing Trips are the perfect outdoor adventure to embark on for individuals, couples, families and small groups. Our Shawnee drift boat is fully stocked with all the equipment you will need, so bring your fishing license, some sun block and drift down the Delaware experiencing your favorite hobby with your own certified fishing guide or pick up fishing as a new summer tradition learning from an expert.
