Well known for sweeping river-views, water-front towns steeped in maritime history, and extraordinary birding, paddling and fishing spots, the lower Susquehanna is a great place to spend the day for nature lovers.
Fly-fishing can be a tool to transform your day into new experiences you’d never expect and takes you to beautiful places you’ve never been. An outing with us is spent in expanded awareness, not only to the fish we wish to catch, but to their habitats, in our local rivers, which house such rich ecosystems. After spending a day on the water you will soon see that rivers are crucial for our own health and well being too.
These journeys are hosted by FFI Certified Casting Instructor Misty Dhillon, who has dedicated over two decades to traveling and leading fly fishing expeditions throughout the Himalayas. Misty is now a local resident of Ellicott City and is excited to share his passion and expertise right here at home.
A full-day’s guided fishing includes 7-hours floating, fishing and witnessing this prolific piedmont habitat in Maryand bordering Pennsylvania. You are met by Misty just below the Conowingo Dam (fisherman’s park). The float-trip ends at the Lapidum boat ramp from where you are driven back to your car at Conowingo Dam (fisherman’s park).
An Inflatable Kayak Rental (included) (sanitized before and after each use) is also available for anglers who prefer a more adventurous option.
Our Local H E A R T Journey are designed using the most potent aspects of our own travels by being Humble, Engaged, Resilient, Aware and Thankful.
The aim of your time with Misty is to create a good foundation of fly-fishing. Safely and efficiently fishing from a kayak. Awareness towards our environment and the health of our planet. Hence whether you are a beginner or an expert, this may be a unique and new experience for you. You can expect a day under Misty Dhillon’s careful guidance, sharing fly fishing skills and his contagious passion. While intentionally taking the time to re-connect you to the natural world, your loved ones, and more importantly yourself.
