Approximately 120 miles from NYC, the town of Roscoe has earned its place on the map for attracting anglers from around the globe. The town, affectionately dubbed Trout Town USA, is renowned for its plentitude of streams, lakes and reservoirs – abundant with trout – that wind their way through its sprawling forests.
