The Story

Go fly fishing in State College, Pennsylvania with the experts at Orvis-endorsed outfitter TCO Fly Shop Central Pennsylvania is home to some of the most historic and premiere trout fishing streams in the country. The unique limestone geology of central Pennsylvania produces some of the most productive trout streams to be found anywhere. Our TCO State College guides are some of the best in the state and excel at teaching the fundamentals of fly-fishing. For more experienced anglers visiting our area, having a guide show them around can be an invaluable experience as we are intimately knowledgeable about our local waters.

We focus on our “Big Four” streams in the State College region. Spring Creek, just a stone throw from our shop has the highest concentration of wild brown trout in Pennsylvania and is the ideal location for those just learning the sport of fly-fishing as well as experienced anglers looking to hone their skills on wary and selective trout. Penns creek is another popular destination, located about one hour away from our shop, is the most storied and famous of all our central PA streams. The trout can be large and this “bug factory” produces some of the best hatches on the east coast. The Little Juniata, just south of State College is another very productive trout stream, producing some fantastic catches every year. Fishing Creek, just outside of Lamar, PA may be the most idyllic of all our streams but is by far the most technical stream with clear water and fussy trout. Within an hour drive from our shop you can be on a myriad of smaller mountain streams chasing native brook trout as well!
