Fishing in Weiser State Forest

Several of the larger streams and rivers in this district offer some of the best warm water fishing to be found anywhere. Cold-water fishing opportunities are available as well on three tracts of the Weiser State Forest. The West Branch of Rattling Creek originates on the Haldeman Tact in northern Dauphin County. This is a beautiful little stream designated as an exceptional value cold-water fishery. Another exceptional value cold-water fishery is Rattling Run in northern Berks County located at the southern edge of the Port Clinton Tract. On the Roaring Creek Tract in southern Northumberland and Columbia counties, fishing opportunities abound. South Branch Roaring Creek is a high quality cold-water fishery which runs for ten miles through this tract and includes three large reservoirs where warm water fishing is available. Ice fishing is becoming a popular winter activity on this tract. ​All fishing within the boundaries of the Weiser State Forest, Roaring Creek Tract is catch and release only.
