Streams near Ligonier

All -- I'll be in Ligonier for a funeral for just the weekend and may have a few hours to sneak away. Any advice on the streams around that area? I'd be fishing artificials, so Loyalhanna DH is an option. I was also looking at Fourmile. Both look like big streams, though, and I prefer smaller waters with more character.

I've never fished the area before, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Loyalhanna is always good. You aren't very far from Linn Run either. If you head up RTE 711 to 271 you can always hit Benscreek on the old Somerset Pike also. Its about 20 minutes from Ligonier. Benscreek is a smaller stream.

I don't fish around Ligonier a whole lot anymore, but have taken my two trout bum sons there a few times in the past couple of years. The Loyalhanna DHALO is pretty nice water. Although a bigger stream, that section is pretty manageable and has some different types of water to fish. My 7 year old can fish several spots comfortably.

Mill Creek - a trib of the Hanna - is some pretty nice water too, and smaller. Linn Run is definitely small water with lots of character, and I imagine since its last stocking was weeks ago, there would be very little angler traffic there.

If you have time for a hike and want some brook trout, check out the Game Commission's website for Game Lands maps. Lots of blue lines in the area to explore with some gorgeous water.

Just wanted to give a quick update on the trip. Managed to get out for a few hours Friday evening (Loyalhanna) and Saturday morning (Linn Run and Loyalhanna DH). Caught a dozen or so, mostly in the 8-10" range, with the nicest being a pretty 16" rainbow out of the DH section... Plus a smallmouth the size of my index finger. Thanks again for the help, guys.
