I'd have to go with millheim, it just feels like a fly fishing town. the brewery is fabulous, a couple other good bars/restaurants. the locals always ask how the fishing is. no one stares when walking around in waders. fly shops within a few miles, and lots of wonderful water to fish, penns, elk, pine, plus countless brookie streams. IMHO, a flyfishing town should NOT have a walmart!!

I'll have to go with the Coburn, Millheim area, I like the streams in the area, Penns, fishing and Elk creeks and my wife and me both like camping at Hemlock acres. But, my faverite stream is Spring Creek, so I'll have to lump Bellefonte and State college in with it.

Great thread, cool to see folks sticking up for their favorite towns. There could be two classifications, best fly fishing town then best fly fishing town to live or retire in?

If you like solitude and want variety, anything from 3 inch wild trout to 30 pound stripers with just about everything in between and are retired, love the small town atmosphere Huntingdon is hard to beat. We are all fortunate to have so many choices

If you like stocked streams we have a few

I agree.

For historic significance, it's hard to beat Roscoe NY.
Every serious fly fisher ought to pay at least one visit to that town

Any town in Centre County should boast well.

However, the Welsboro Area probably has some of the most scenic streams in the state. And if this is about PA fishing then the brook trout should have a leg up and is there a better area for brookies than "God's Country?"

"Hbg has the ABC brewery. Good beer and good food in a cool setting".

I've been to the Appalation Brewing Co. once up stairs with the bar and deck and you can look down through the plate glass into the basement at the vats. I highly recomend the Water Gap Wheat beer they sell. It is a personal favorite. Two thumbs up. Best beer around.

And after my vacation I vote Forksville in Sullivan Co. As a sleeper of a trout town. Dozens of brookie streams and the upper Loyalsock is a sleeper itself in the upper remote stretches. I have to laugh because the special regs area on the sock is a good 30 miles at least, downstream from where I was catching big rainbows in nice deep holes. I caught lots of beautiful bows in beautiful surroundings and not one had dull colors or ragged fins. Makes me wonder whether they're stocked or not. Mehoopany is creek not far and there are just miles and miles of overlooked trout water in the Sullivan County highlands.

I'll vote for HBG

Letort, Manada and Wiconisco should be added to the HBG list as well.

Warm water lakes like Holman at Little Buffalo, Pinchot and Memorial Lake near Indiantoen Gap offers more options.

Not a real long drive to fish Stripers in the Bay of shad below Conowingo Dam.

The options regarding water types and variety of fish avaiable are why I love to live here.

Best fly fishing town in Pennsylvania… the only one I can think of is Henryville, PA… the genesis of fly-fishing in America!

I second Bruno with Wellsboro. Crossforks comes in a close second. Both of those towns have great fishing very close, scenery, and character.

I dont know how anyone can vote for Harrisburg. I know there is fishing near by. WIth that being said though a traditional fly fishing town is filled with mom and pop stores, doesnt contain the huge amount of chains and traffic that Harrisburg does, and you dont hear about shootings, rapes, drive bys, and robberies either.

I've been to Denver. It's a heck of a lot cleaner and nicer looking than Harrisburg.
