The Catskill Fly Fishing Report

Wednesday April 11th, 2021
10:00 AM
Fly

Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek, and the Delaware River System

The rivers are clear & the flows are great. Do not miss this early season opportunity to fish large weighted nymphs. Streamer fishing has also been productive. Cover as much water as possible. We have a warm couple of days ahead of us, so little black stonefly & caddis hatches are a real possibility. Be on the look out for small olives (18-22) as well.

Check out our suggestions below, we will be adapting to the changing environment over the coming weeks.

Hatches: Little Black Stoneflies (16-18) Tan Caddis (16-18) Blue Wing Olive (18-22)

EARLY SPRING STORE HOURS: 7 DAYS A WEEK 9:00 AM TO 5:00 PM

Rental Equipment available: Fly Rod/Reel Combo - $35/day; Bootfoot Waders - $35/day

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