Beaverkill Angler Catskill Guide Service

The Beaverkill Angler has a staff that likes to stay active on the water, but many days we just have to stay in the shop. That's where our experienced and professional group of Catskill guides come in. We offer quality float and wading trips on the Upper Delaware River system, in addition to our walk and wade trips on the Beaverkill River and Willowemoc Creek. Full and half day trips are available. Contact us with any questions or to book your trip and reserve a guide today.


Walk/Wade Trips: Half Day- $295 for 2 people. Third person add $25.

Full Day- $395 for 2 people. Third person add $50

Both rates include basic gear (rods/reels). Flies are not included in base price. Waders are available to purchase or rent. Full Day Trips include lunch.

Float Trips: Full Day- $425

Cost is for up to 2 people, and includes basic gear (rods/reels). Flies are not included in base price. Waders are available to purchase or rent. Trip includes lunch and beverages.

***All of our trips are catch and release only and we only use fly fishing gear for trout. Spinning gear is an option for our summer smallmouth bass trips on the Main Stem of the Delaware.

***We do not sell fishing licenses at the shop and recommend you purchase them in advance. You can do so at the NYDEC Website or anyplace that sells licenses. There are two locations in Roscoe that also issue them.

Cancellation Policy: a 50% deposit is required when booking a guided fishing trip. Should you need to cancel your reservation, this deposit will be refunded as long as we receive a minimum of 2 weeks notice prior to the trip. If we receive a week's notice on a cancellation, then the deposit can be applied to a later trip in the same calendar year. There is typically no refund on cancellations with less than a week's notice, or multiple cancellations.

Some of our Catskill Guides:

Rich Hudgens

Rich Hudgens has been guiding the Upper Delaware system for the past ten years, and brings the same passion and professionalism every day on the water. Patient and knowledgeable, a day floating or wading with Rich can help you improve your skills whether you are a beginner or more advanced fly angler. His dedication and energy come in handy while he is chasing fish on the water...or his 3 children around at home!

Dennis Cluck

Dennis Cluck Jr. has been fishing the Catskills for over twenty years. Whether you want to fish the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, West Branch of the Delaware, or explore some of the smaller tributaries for native brook trout, Dennis' high school teaching and coaching background makes him an excellent guide for both experienced and beginning anglers.

Judd Weisberg

Judd Weisberg lives on the banks of Schoharie Creek and has been fly fishing and fly tying since he was 7 years old. He has taught countless anglers of all ages to fly fish on Catskill rivers from the Delaware to the Esopus. When he is not floating the river in his 15' Koffler, Judd's time is spent with his wife and golden retriever, or crafting Adirondack style furniture in his workshop.

Ray Ottulich

Ray Ottulich is one of the most diverse guides we work with. A New York native who has fished since he was twelve, Ray floats the Delaware system, wades the Neversink, and chases striper on Hudson River tributaries. He has also written for the New York Times Outdoor Column, the Blue Stone Press, and Flyfishing the West.

Oleh Czmola

Oleh Czmola honed his fishing skills growing up in western New York. Over the past twenty years the Catskills have become his back yard. From the Beaverkill to the Schoharie his enthusiasm is contagious. His passion for teaching from the simplest to complex help to create a memorable experience. When not guiding or fishing Oleh is often found hiking and cycling in the area.

Matt Nelson

Matt Nelson started guiding in and around Yellowstone Park in 2002. He continued to guide in Wyoming until moving east in 2011 to manage the Beaverkill Angler. Although he spends most of his working hours running the shop, he likes to use his free time to hit the rivers and typically runs walk wade trips on the Beaverkill and Willowemoc. Matt has also taught most of our Fly Fishing 101 classes since he arrived, and is happy to share is knowledge in the shop or on the river.

Evan Lavery

Evan Lavery in addition to owning the Beaverkill Angler, also guides. And if he's not in the shop you may be able to book him for a walk/wade trip on one of our local rivers.
