According to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Pennsylvania Organization for Waterways and Rivers, the Clarion River has won the designation of 2019 River of the Year. Rivers are nominated and selected by popular vote. The “River of the Year” award includes a $10,000 Leadership Grant to the Allegheny Watershed Improvement Needs organization.
“A Wild and Scenic River that draws legions of anglers, paddlers and other outdoors enthusiasts throughout the seasons, the Clarion River in northwestern Pennsylvania has been voted the state’s 2019 River of the Year.”
The Clarion’s eminently fishable waters are well-known by Adventure Bound’s fly fishing guides, Damon Newpher and Nick Sagnibene. In fact, Damon has been fishing and guiding clients on the Clarion for over twenty years.
