PA Frys Run, Coffeetown Rd
Marker Description: Frys run is one of Northampton County's lime stone stream gems. This stream is infested with wild browns, which are surprisingly large for the size of this stream -10 feet wide on average or less. There are many wild brown trout in the 9 to 11 inch range and they are aggressive. I have heard that there are also native brook trout but I did not see or hook any.

It is good to park your car down at the parking area for the park along Route 611 because, although the stream is excellent upstream, it is hard to park along Coffetown Road because there is little to no shoulder or any pull off areas to speak of. So this is a fishing/hiking trip but it is well worth it.

Frys Run seems to settle and flatten out and then take a drop and in these drops there are some nice pockets with Boulders and moss and nice old trees. It is a beautiful stream. The houses are many far from the stream and very spread out so it is not like your walking through someone's back yard. Not exactly a wilderness stream but not suburban as some have called it - more like your going through farms/estates - very nice.

Stopped in yesterday on my way through on 611 to check out the new walking bridge restoration and parking area. Frys Run looked like a trickle. I can't remember seeing the creek look this scant. I didn't realize how little rain we've gotten this year. Well at least it rained today, might be a good time to hit up the Fry.

Re: Frys Run Wild Brown Trout Stream Posted by dnorris Fri. April 08, 2011 11:46 pm
Fished today with a No. 1 Mepps and small yellow and red dotted Panther Martin as well as all assortments of Trout Magnets. I had the most luck with the Panther Martin - caught 10 or so wild browns. All pools with any depth held fish and these wild browns were bigger than expected - I caught six that were 9 - 11 inches.

I didn't see any real big trout, I only fished up about a half a mile and the water looked good ahead - I kept wanting to see what was around the corner but it was getting dark and I had to walk back - I walked back along Cofeetown Road, which was nice. I will be back to hike/fish it all, I beleive there are 16 miles of fishable water.
