Central Pennsylvania is rightly famous for its fly-fishing. the Pennsylvania Fish & Hunt Commission work hard to ensure that streams such as the Yellow Breeches, and Letort Spring Run are well stocked with fine trout of different varieties.

A visit to Huntsdale State Fish Hatchery is fascinating and shows the process of maintaining Pennsylvania's high quality of fishing streams. Just a 17 minute drive from the Carlisle House, the Huntsdale State Fish Hatchery is situated on approximately 80 developed acres (167 total acres) of land owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission, in the Village of Huntsdale in Cumberland County, Penn Township.

Amateur or expert, every angler dreams of landing the big one, but that's only part of the appeal of fly fishing. Because even when hours pass without a bite, nothing beats the rugged beauty of the surroundings.

For both armchair travelers and avid outdoorsmen who may have already started a checklist of their own, Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die by author Chris Santella maps out the meccas of the fly-fishing world. Included is the Letort Spring Run, just 1 mile from the Carlisle House. Our picture shows renowned Pennsylvania expert trout-fisherman Ed Shenk.
