Known as Trout Town, U.S.A., Roscoe is the site of the protected Beaverkill and Willowemoc creeks, some of the most famous angling waters in the Northeast. Fly-fishing enthusiasts make pilgrimages to this Sullivan County community on the western edge of the Catskills to fish for rainbow, brook, and brown trout. And if that's not enough, the fabled waters of Junction Pool are where American dry-fly fishing is said to have gotten its start. You would think that the people of this village had gills—it's all fishing, all the time.
