Fishing

What better way to go fishing than right in the back yard.  Pine Lake, which is 100 feet from the lodge has great fishing.  There are also many other great fishing destinations within a short drive of Hemlock Point Lodge.  In fact the upper Delaware offers world renown trout fishing.

The PA Fish and Boat Commission has several lakes in the area that are open to public fishing and boating.  A few are Belmont Lake, Miller Pond, Upper Woods Pond, and Lower Woods Pond.   Follow the links on this web site www.fish.state.pa.us/Fish/lakes.htm
