Learn the fundamentals of casting in your back yard or nearby park..then go to a stream or river.. There are no streams (within 30 mins) of Pgh. that hold trout this time of year (to low and warm)..

PS ..Do not "toss your flyrod"..you wanna cast the rod & "toss" the fly

I would be looking for bass fishing or anything that would bite at that time of the year. I would guess most of the trout waters around the burg would be to warm to want to target trout last aug early sept.

Re: Easy learning spot close to pgh

If you are in the south hills, you can reach many portions of the lower Yough River in 3o minutes. There are many different species of fish to be caught there, but more importantly, it's expansive, which allows you to "practice" unabated, and that seems to be your primary goal ?

Go find some bluegills in a pond or lake. There is probably no better way to get started.

You could try both lakes at North Park or you could head to Big Sewickley Creek (there are still trout in some of those holes).

Only the owners of a GSP would truly understand, "If I fits, I sits".

Also if you didn't mind the drive Buffalo Creek still has plenty of fish as does Volant
