Bedford County’s premier limestone stream with 10 miles of stocked water. The upper meadow section, above Loysburg, resembles a classic limestone stream flowing through pastures where erosion and siltation can be a problem. From Loysburg downstream, Yellow Creek changes character as it loses elevation and flows through the Loysburg Gap where large boulders, deep pools and fast riffles produce large trout all season. A Delayed Harvest Fly Fishing Only Area can be accessed by turning off Route 36 onto SR 1024 (at the New Frontier Restaurant) and driving several miles to the second bridge. The special regulation area begins upstream where Maple Run enters Yellow Creek and continues upstream for 1 mile. Lower sections of the stream hold trout in the spring and summer.
