When anglers think of great fly fishing destinations, Pennsylvania does not normally come to mind… but it should.
Pennsylvania has more than 83,000 miles of streams, second only to Alaska. Over 10,000 miles of Pennsylvania’s streams support populations of wild trout. A very small percentage of these streams are spring-fed, limestone streams. “Limestoners” are found in very few places in the world. They are named such because they are formed by springs that bubble out through karst limestone formations. Originating deep underground, they emerge at a constant 52 degrees year-round. The dissolved limestone provides alkalinity which makes streams fertile. This creates a great habitat to support healthy trout. HomeWaters is fortunate to offer its members and guests exclusive access to five different blue ribbon limestone streams located in Central PA.
HomeWaters main campus is in the small town of Spruce Creek and sits at the confluence of Spruce Creek and the Little Juniata River. Our location makes it an easy trip from all the population centers in the Northeast U.S.
Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC are all less than a four-hour drive, with New York just longer than four hours. While most of our guests from these locations choose to drive, the State College (SCE) regional airport is served by American, United and Delta Airlines, and is a short 35-minute drive to our campus.
