Jersey George: Where is Lydia's? When I was at Balls Eddy with the Prof we couldn't find any decent pubs to watch the Phillies. There was a dive on Winterdale Road that was a scary place. Checked out the Elk Creek Cafe webpage. Sounds out of place when I looked at the menu. Sounds like it should be closer to Philly. Hey Osprey...the Boiling Springs Tavern got better after the Redskins moved training camp from Carlisle.

Fade -

Lydias is at the junction of routes 370 and 191 - just a mile or so below Hancock on the PA side of the river. I've been able to catch some penguin games in there, so they do have pretty good taste in sports teams.

Bugger-

The new slate run hotel is very nice, with good food and drink. And there still seems to be plenty of good fishing BS - just like before when Jim and Alice ran it. A young couple own it now - I believe the guys name is Mark.

Although it's been a long time since I drank, still remember a few. Always like the Wharton hotel, Black forest inn( I think thats the name), Spuce creek inn( french fries), Brownies in Milhiem, when the kitchen was open. Never been in Elk creek cafe yet. I've been in a lot more over the years but don't remember their names.

I love the Yellow Breeches, Boiling springs tavern, good food, never meet a lot of fishermen there!

Elk Creek Cafe, Hotel Manor, and my #1, the Wharton Hotel.

You gotta love the Wharton. $1 drafts in mason jars. Sitting at the bar in your waders. Looking at the stream right outside the window. Great place. It has some character and history. I try and sit where my grandfather always sat.

I'm putting my vote in for the Halton Hilton. Definitely an experience for anyone who has not been there.

oh JDaddy........you can catch a wil;d brown and get stabbed in the same spot in Carlisle . if that's what you want. lol i think this one is going to be fuuuuuuun.


He, he, he. I knew that one would get ya! I highly prefer dodging knives and fishing for wild browns on the Letort. Breeches is just too similar to the Tully for me to drive there and fish, when there are much more unique fisheries that I can usually have to myself when I am in that area. If I lived in the area I am sure I would fish Breeches more.

Having lived in potter for some time prior to this spring and working there for five years I think the people that own and run the wharton are absolutely nuts. Serious conspiracy theory nuts. They have a sign up now to sign a petition apparently they do not own the parking lot and someone else is using it. They claimed to have watched black helicopters dropping ladybugs out.

I loved the old manor down on slate run, but the new one lacks character, but they do have some ok beers if you are in the area. I don't think most of pa has much for true fishing bars, I liked the place in bellefonte that burnt down, but I doubt they would have approved of stinky waders.

Yes the Vowinckle Hotel is still there. One of my favorite places for wings so I'll second gulfgreyhound's nomination. Also add the Kelly Hotel to the list. Definately wader friendly.

"Hilbilly Haven" in Fairhope Pa. on Wills creek and Shafer run and last but certainly not least "The Dew Drop Inn" between Manns Choice Pa. and New Baltimore Pa. on the upper reaches of the Raystown Branch of the Juniata.
