DreamCast Program

2014 Program

18 SESSIONS

 

In 2011 Our Town – Roscoe NY, earned the well deserved honor of being named the Ultimate Fishing Town in the United States ! This designation was earned through a competition sponsored by the World Fishing Network & Eagle Claw Hooks. With the win, we won $25,000!! The money we won is to be used for a Fishing Related event or Program!!  What better way to use these funds than to give people that have never experienced the thrill of that “Tug on the line” that leads to CATCHING their FIRST FISH! After much discussion & planning the DREAMCAST program was born.

Welcome to Roscoe, NY

Trout Town USA

 

 

 

Roscoe has been known as Trout Town USA for decades --- both here and abroad. Our choice natural setting, with 5 of America’s top trout streams and numerous reservoirs and lakes in our backyard, make us an angler’s paradise. Add to this our convenient location approximately two hours from NYC, Connecticut and New Jersey and it is easy to see why we believe you will “Come Cast a Line in our Waters ---- you’ll be Hooked for a Lifetime”.

Positioned at the gateway to the Catskill Park and surrounded by over 20,000 acres of State Forest Preserve, a great variety of outdoor activities are available in and around Roscoe year round. Whether you like to camp, hike, bike, ski, bird-watch, snowmobile, hunt, golf, or just step back and enjoy the natural beauty around you, you will understand why Sports and Field Magazine named Roscoe the “Best Outdoor Sports Town in New York”.

There are a significant number of cultural and other attractions nearby as well, from the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on the former site of the Woodstock Festival --- to museums, covered bridges, arts societies, fine shops, etc. So on those rare occasions that you would rather be indoors than outdoors, you can find plenty to do. Add to this the lodging and eatery choices in Roscoe, and you will quickly find this a great location to spend your weekends, to vacation, and to live!!

So if you are looking for a warm, friendly and welcoming small town with a wonderful community spirit, take some time to get to know us on this website. Then make some time to come and visit us, and you will understand why people “Come to Roscoe for a visit and stay for a lifetime!”

 

"The Ultimate Fishing Town in the USA"

In June 2011, Roscoe was named the Ultimate Fishing Town -USA by the World Fishing Network (WFN).  Having competed against 300 US fishing towns over a period of three months, Roscoe won the title by receiving 267,434 votes from anglers and countless supporters of this special place.

 In addition to the bragging rights Roscoe gained from winning this award, WFN donated $25,000 to the town for fishing related activities. We have made, and continue to make, good use of this prize. Some of of the funds were used to build a bridge expanding Riverside Park to provide an additional point of access to the world famous Junction Pool. We are currently in the process of developing DREAMCAST, a guided learning program to invite people to "catch their first fish" in Roscoe..check back to this website for details as the program takes shape!

Thanks to all of you who supported Roscoe through this challenging contest.  In addition to winning the contest, we achieved a sense of community pride from our town and surrounding areas that makes us a truly a winner.

Roscoe Wins Again and Again

 

In addition to winning the Ultimate Fishing Town award, Roscoe has recently been honored to receive several grants and awards that acknowledge the uniqueness of our town. The NYS Assembly awarded two $50,000 Golden Feather Grants in the last three years, recognizing Roscoe as having exhibited the highest level of excellence in revitalization and beautification projects. In 2010, we were awarded the Main Street Grant, which provided $200,000 to the community to improve our buildings and streetscape. In 2011, we received a grant from the Preservation League of New York State to assist us in surveying the historic properties along our River Corridor. And the list goes on. We are proud of all the hard work and dedication of our community members and look forward to continued efforts to make a great town, even better!!!
