Fishing at Nescopeck State Park

The nine-acre Lake Frances has:

  • Trout
  • Bass
  • Panfish

A well-used trail circles Lake Frances and provides fishing access throughout the year.

Six miles of Nescopeck Creek are designated as a high-quality, cold-water fishery and contains brown trout and native brook trout. Several miles of the creek are designated as delayed harvest, artificial lure only.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission stocks Lake Frances and Nescopeck Creek.

Fishing poles are available to borrow seasonally for use at the visitor center as part of a loaner program.
