1st Guard Rail

Location: from Styx Pool bend eastward

Known locally as the “Deep Run”, the 400’ guard rail stretch is underpinned with ledge rock.  The trout are lying in wait along the ledge and among several submerged boulders placed during the restoration. This run is one of the sections used to Fly Fisherman of the Year finals competition and is very productive.  The 50’ tall embankment and hemlocks project serenity and solitude.
