Lackawanna, Lackawaxen and the Upper Delaware Rivers-
Northeastern Pennsylvania, whose waters are steeped in American angling history, boasts some of the best fly fishing for trout in the world. Among its prime trout waters is the Lackawanna River, which was a heavily polluted urban waterway for many decades during the region’s coal-mining heyday. Today, thanks to the efforts of local conservationists and fly fishermen, a five-mile stretch of the Lackawanna is a designated Trophy Trout fishery teeming with wild brown trout
