Anyone who enjoys great scenery and prime tailwater fishing (and who doesn’t!) will enjoy Manitou Springs, Colorado. Located near Pike’s Peak and surrounded by national forest, this ... morebeautiful small town of under 5,000 people has a lot to offer fly fishing aficionados as well as other outdoor enthusiasts.

Within a few miles of town it’s possible to reach some of the finest trout fishing in Colorado, if not the country, on the South Platte River. The three top sections along the Platte easily reached from Manitou Springs are Cheesman Canyon and Deckers, northwest of town; the Dream Stream, which runs between Spinney Mountain Reservoir and Eleven Mile Reservoir, and the Eleven Mile Canyon stretch that runs downstream of its reservoir.

There are other great choices as well. The Middle Fork of the South Platte is designated as both a Gold Medal and Wild Trout Stream while the South Fork of the South Platte is blessed with Gold Medal status. These waters are defined as being able to produce at least 60 pounds of trout per acre, and at least twelve 14" or larger trout per acre on a sustained basis. Only 316 miles of Colorado's 9000 miles of trout streams, and three lakes, carry the Gold Medal label. Spinney Mountain Reservoir is one of the few still waters in the region to carry Gold Medal distinction. Downstream from Cheesman is another good section that runs next to the town of Deckers. Deckers has good public access and can be fished throughout most of the year.

While Manitou Springs is now a historical town that attracts tourists and sports minded visitors, it began as a mining town and spa, made famous by its natural mineral springs. Founded in 1872, it became known as a place to go to “get the cure” from the town’s healing waters and serene setting. Situated on the Ute Pass Trail, covered wagons eventually gave way to rail cars when in the late 1880’s the Colorado Midland Railway succeeded in getting tracks through the passage. Today the town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In addition to any number of outdoor activities, the town also hosts entertaining events. Concerts, speaker series and arts and crafts festivals are well attended. Perhaps the most famous is the Pike’s Peak Ascent and Marathon, so difficult and physically taxing, that runners must pass a qualifying test before being allowed to enter the competition.

There are several ways to get to Manitou Springs, including:

Fly to Colorado Springs Municipal Airport and drive for approximately 20 minutes

Fly to Pueblo Memorial Airport and drive for approximately 45 minutes

Fly to Denver International Airport and drive for approximately 1½ hours

Fly to Albuquerque International Airport and drive for approximately 5 hours
Strategically located near the Blue, Williams Fork and Colorado Rivers, Silverthorne is an ideal destination for great fly fishing. First established as a mining town by Marshall Silverthorn ... morein the mid-1880’s, he went on to become the town’s Hotelier, judge, justice of the peace, postmaster, storekeeper and ferrier. After a long and prosperous run, the interest in mining waned and the town was forced to re-invent itself.

When the state decided to built Dillon Dam and Reservoir in the early 1960’s, scores of construction workers came to the area. After the dam was completed, many workers stayed on and a new town was incorporated. Today, Silverthorne is a small village with less than 4,000 full time residents, but it is entirely focused on tourism, eco-adventures and outdoor sports.

Since the Blue River runs right through the center of town, its actually possible to fish for trout without having to go more than a few blocks from your hotel room. If you happen to be traveling with friends or family less interested in casting off, there is a long list of other things to do. Surrounded by high mountains and scenic beauty, Silverthorne is close to the million acre Arapaho National Forest, the 2 million acre White River Forest, the 1.2 million acre San Isabel National Forest and the 1.1 million acre Pike National Forest, all worth visiting.

Outdoor activities include skiing, both downhill and cross country, horseback riding, white water rafting, zip-lining through the trees, snow tubing, snowmobiling, boat rentals on Lake Dillon, ATV or jeep rentals and tours, snow-biking, mountain biking, golfing … and the list goes on. There’s no excuse for being bored in this neck of the woods.

In addition to the Blue and Williams Fork Rivers, there are also other places to fly fish. Gore Creek, a bit west of town, is a Gold Medal trout stream, while a little east of town you can fish the Fraser River, a designated Wild Trout fishery. There are also myriad creeks to try, including the Ten Mile, Muddy, Troublesome, Boulder, Indiana and Willow.

While Michigan is called the Land of the Lakes, there is also an abundance of other rivers within a short drive from Grayling. These include the Sturgeon, Pigeon, Black and Jordan Rivers, not to mention the numerous stillwater options.

Kayaking and canoeing are Grayling favorites, attracting tourists from around the globe. One of its biggest draws is the annual Au Sable River Canoe Marathon, a night and day race which starts in Grayling and ends in Oscoda, 120 miles down river. Cycling is also well supported here with an annual mountain bike race and festival. Inside the Hanson Hills Recreation Area there is a 20+mile, single track trail. The town even offers its own Bicycle Turnpike with 6 ½ miles of paved trails.

Replete with historical narratives, the area hosts Lovells Township Fly Fishing Museum, the Crawford County Historical Museum and the Hartwick Pines Logging Museum.

The town of State College, home to Penn State University, is a place where you can fish for trout in amazing streams and take college level courses in fly fishing at the same time. ... moreState College, founded in the mid-1800s as an “AG” school, over time became home to Penn State University. Even though the name of the school and its post office appellation changed in the early 1950’s, the town has retained its original name.

Fly fishing has long been a part of the University’s tradition. George Harvey, an early pioneer of physical education and competitive sports, began teaching fly fishing courses in the mid-1930s. By the late 1940’s his classes became part of the school’s curriculum; to this day, fly fishing classes are offered as for-credit.

A short distance from campus is Spring Creek, a wild, trout filled, limestone stream. There are several other fine streams for both students and sportsmen to fish within reach of town, including the Little Juanita River, Penn’s Creek, Fishing Creek and Spruce Creek. Great efforts have been made to successfully restore these waters from industrial pollutants with the assistance of several conservation groups. Sport fishing groups include the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Fly Fishing Club at University Park.

If traveling with friends or family not interested in fishing, State College offers all the rich cultural, social and athletic activities you can expect to find in a university town, such as the performing arts, film festivals and art fairs. Outdoor activities consist of hiking, golf, mountain biking and boating. During the season, Beaver Stadium, home to the Penn State Nittany Lions, is packed with fans.

Cotter, Arkansas heralds itself as the trout capital of the USA. Nine states including Vermont, NY, NC, PA, and NH, have declared the brook trout as their state fish. And, some folks ... moreup north have crowned brookies the Provincial Fish of Nova Scotia. But ask anyone in Rangeley and they’ll unabashedly tell you that their little town in Maine is the undisputed brook trout capital of America.

No doubt, Rangeley is steeped in fly fishing history. An 1877, 15-page article about the Rangeley region published by Harper’s New Monthly Magazine attracted huge publicity, encouraging railroads to expand and tourists to arrive in large numbers. By 1900 there were already over 200 fishing guides in the watershed. Wealthy anglers acquired land and established homes and private camps, a tradition that to some extent has not been broken. Famous guides like Herbie Welch drew tourists, including former President, Herbert Hoover. During the late 1920s and 1930s large hotels were built and many guests brought their own chefs and staff. It was the “Golden Age” of Rangeley.

Other notables include Carrie Stevens. Born before the turn of the 20th century, she became a milliner before working with her husband/guide throughout the early 1900s from her camp on Mooselookmeguntic Lake. She studied the fish and the waters around Rangeley and applied her millinery skills to developing flies that soon became famous – the Blue Charm, Gray Ghost and Golden Witch to name a few. Still in use today, Steven’s flies and appearances on the cover of Field and Stream helped secure Rangeley’s stature as a premier fly fishing destination.

Today Rangeley is much lower key but the tradition of private camps and limited access still persists on sections of its neighboring lakes and rivers. However, guests arriving now have a wide range of lodging options, from luxury living to tent camping. Restaurants are plentiful, the town calendar of events is full and there is a wide range of activities for anyone coming along that doesn’t care to fish. Opportunities for outdoor sports such as boating and biking are nearly unlimited, while hikers can easily find their way to the Appalachian Trail. Winter skiing remains popular with many ski-runs named after legendary river guides and flies.

There are many options for traveling to Rangeley, including:

Fly to Bangor International Airport and drive for approximately 2 ½ hours

Fly to Portland International Jetport and drive for approximately 2 ½ hours

Drive from Boston, approximately 4 hours

Drive from Manchester, less than 4 hours
Named after founding father, John Hancock, this town sits at the confluence of three great fisheries – the West Branch, East Branch and main stem Delaware Rivers. Close by are three ... moreadditional fly fishing favorites – the Beaverkill, Willowemoc Creek and Neversink Rivers. The town itself is a compilation of several villages, including Hancock Village, a quaint town square known as the “gateway” to the Delaware. Located in the Catskill region, widely thought to be where the sport first started, Hancock is surrounded by a heavy concentration of fly shops and fly fishing schools, not to mention the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum.

Once home to several Native American Indian tribes, European settlers came to the area to exploit its natural resources including timber and stone quarries. Hancock found a bit of fame by supplying wood for making Louisville Slugger bats. Iconic ball players including Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio, scored home runs with Hancock timber. Several New York City icons are made from Hancock bluestone, including the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty. 

Despite these delightful historical notes, even Hancock’s history remains best known for its location at the headwaters of the Delaware and for the surrounding rivers and streams. Once a wilderness, by the late 1800s the region was already attracting anglers in droves. Along with them came writers, conservationists, fly makers, and entomologists, to fish, observe and chronicle the spectacle. Luminaries came to be seen and to experience the fish – brook trout, brown trout, rainbow and steelhead – and developed new flies by imitating insects found in local waters.

Today, visitors to Hancock can drive thirty minutes and visit Historic Roscoe, NY, better known as Trout Town USA or visit the museum and its Fly Fishing Hall of Fame. For anyone tagging along but not interested in fishing, Hancock is located just outside the 650,000-acre Catskill Park. Within the park are nearly 100 mountains 3000 feet or greater. It’s possible to camp, hike, canoe, view wildlife, bike on trails or simply take in the impressive Catskill Forest Preserve. The renowned Bicycle Route 17 follows the Upper Delaware Scenic Highway for approximately 70 miles. Other attractions include the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and the Catskill Art Center in nearby Livingston Manor.

There are several options for traveling to Hancock, including:

Drive approximately 2 ½ hours from New York City

Drive approximately 2 ½ hours from Newark, NJ

Drive approximately 3 hours from Hartford, Connecticut

Drive approximately 4 hours from Boston, MA

Its name may say house, but this is a town. Located in west central Alberta, the town is near the confluence of the Clearwater and North Saskatchewan Rivers. Toward the end of the ... more18th century, the town was established as a trading post for the British and Canadian fur traders as they expanded westward.
