Paul L. Kanaskie

Growing up fly-fishing French Creek in Chester County, Pennsylvania (a kindergarten dissertation on the principles of camouflage attests to his early start in outdoor pursuits), Paul was introduced to Atlantic Salmon fishing on what would become an annual trip to the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada at the age of 12. While living in Lewisburg, PA, Paul tempted the local trout in Penn’s Creek, Big Fishing Creek, and the Pine Creek Valley. After moving with his wife and two daughters to the Lewistown Valley near Tamaqua, Paul became an expert guide on the Lehigh River and the Upper Lehigh Gorge. More recently, he has also become addicted to the challenge that is the Upper Delaware. A dry fly specialist known for his big fish karma, Paul’s positive attitude and patience make him a popular guide and fishing partner.
