Fishing The Susquehanna River

Koinonia Guide Service


It is our mission at Koinonia Guide Service to provide our clients a safe, educational, productive and memorable experience and to expose people to God's Great Creation.


Our goal is to demonstrate to our clients God's great power and mercy by sharing with them the wonderful Susquehanna River. We see God's great power because He created this wonderful resource and we see His mercy in the fact that he has given us the time, ability and resources to enjoy his creation.

We want to encourage families, friends and business associates to create wonderful wholesome memories while promoting fellowship and conservation. To that end, we guarantee that you will never be embarrassed or offended by the language or actions of our Guides.

About this trip

Plan your Trip

To get the most out of your fishing excursion, careful planning is very important and that is where we come in. We are here with the boat and gear and with the professional fishing know-how to give you an enjoyable, worry free fishing adventure.

The Boat used for Penn Trips

We fish from durable shallow running aluminum bass boats with powerful jet drives. These rigs provides a stable, safe and comfortable experience.

When the water is warm, we can also provide a more active approach by doing a canoe/wading trip. Wading can be physically demanding and is not recommended for everyone.

We provide the boat, fishing rods, tackle, safety vests and, of course, help and training if needed from our professional guides.

You are to bring a valid fishing license, rubber soled or wading shoes, rain gear, sunglasses, a lunch or snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and your camera to chronicle the day's take.
