Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek, and the Delaware River System

FISHING REPORTS UPDATED MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS

Its opening day but it does feel different. Fortunately the fishing gets better later in the month. Find the slow sections and nymph them, there are fish there. Despite the warmer weather its still early so stay tuned. The rivers are still a bit high but that doesn't mean you can find places to fish. Also water drops a bit slower in the spring.

If your coming to the area and need something just give us a call and we can make arrangements for you to pick stuff up in town.

NEW YORK STATE HAS MANDATED NON ESSENTIAL BUSINESS CLOSE WHICH MEANS STARTING MONDAY WE WILL REOPEN WHEN WE CAN. Early Spring Shop Hours Thursday - Monday 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Closed Tuesday & Wednesday. Barring unforeseen circumstances we will be maintaining normal store hours.

Rental Equipment available: Fly Rod/Reel Combo - $30/day; Bootfoot Waders - $30/day

***We do not sell fishing licenses at the shop and recommend you purchase them in advance since they can be difficult to find in town. You can do so at the NYDEC Website

The Beaverkill & Willowemoc - Only catch and release sections open.

The East Branch of the Delaware - The East Branch is now closed upstream from the Shinhopple bridge.

The West Branch and Main Stem - Either river is good for wading. Still mostly a subsurface game. REMEMBER: The West Branch is now closed where it does not border PA.
