Guided Float Tube Fishing Trips, Fishing Lakes of Southwestern PA

Services & Information

Float Tubes

A float tube is a very comfortable lightweight, single person watercraft that enables you to reach wilderness areas of streams, ponds and lakes. Float tubes have proven themselves to be one of the most convenient, safe and effective ways to fish small lakes for all species of game fish.

You sit in the built-in seat of the float tube, wearing full chest waders to keep you dry & warm. You move slowly and quietly through the water, using float tube fins to propel yourself, as you cast with the constant anticipation of the water exploding in front of you as a fish slams your lure as you go fishing for large mouth bass, carp, muskie and pike. 

Acme Dam Fishing doesn’t just show you where, we show you how! No prior float tube or fishing experience necessary! We will teach you the tricks and methods of catching fish from a float tube, proper use of all float tube fishing equipment, and individualized fishing instruction for beginners and novices alike.

Bring your own gear or tap into our high-quality assortment of Caddis Creek Co. Round Boats Open Faced , and Pontoon styled float tubes with maximum capacities ranging from 225 lbs. to 350 lbs.
