PA Troutfitters

Hi, I'm Bill Nolan, I am a veteran owned fly fishing guide service based out of Slatedale, PA, specializing in drift boat trips on the Lehigh River, and walk and wade trips on the Pohopoco, Little Lehigh, Monocacy and other local streams, as well as providing fly casting instruction and fly fishing 101 classes.  I believe strongly in volunteering, and have run the Veterans Service Partnership through Donegal Trout Unlimited from 2016 to 2021. I am a graduate of the Wulff School of Fishing  and Sweetwater Guide School. I am passionate about fly fishing and the outdoors.  I look forward to sharing these waters with you.

Tight lines,

Bill Nolan
