Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek, and the Delaware River System

FISHING REPORTS UPDATED MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS

Well it snowed early again this year so its a bit of a winter wonderland in Roscoe. River conditions aren't bad considering. Just a reminder we are starting to get calls for gift certificates for the holiday season. A guide trip is a pretty good gift idea! Expect to fish subsurface, hatches are typically few right now, with nymphs and streamers being your best bets.

The upper sections of rivers and feeder creeks are now closed for the season. Be sure to check your regulations if you are unsure what areas are open for fishing.

Winter Shop Hours: Thursday through Monday 9:00am-4:00pm. Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If the weather report is significant please call ahead.

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

TIP OF THE WEEK - Floating the Main Stem or the West Branch is your best bet right now, the rivers are too high to wade after the rain.

The Beaverkill & Willowemoc - Easy wading today. Streamers and nymphs have been most productive. Some sporadic hatches. REMEMBER: The Beaverkill is now closed upstream from the 206 bridge, and the Willowemoc is now closed upstream from the Parkston bridge.

The East Branch of the Delaware - Easy wading at these flows. Streamers and nymphs have been most productive. Some sporadic hatches. REMEMBER: 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.
