Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek, and the Delaware River System

Due to time constraints we have to alter our fishing reports. Also some have noticed they haven't been as up to date. For the near term we are going to do a weekly outlook with updates related to dramatic events.

Update Report:

The rain last Thursday night gave us some high water over the weekend, those in boats did very well on a variety of techniques. Wade fishing was a bit tough but that rain will set us up for a great week of fishing. The tailwater should stay a bit high but the Beaverkill and Willowemoc will start offering some great fishing, expect to see some good hatches as well.

Isonychia (12-14) & BWO (18-22), have good potential hatches. Start fishing Ants & Beetles and attractor patterns with a nymph dropper.

SPRING STORE HOURS: 9:00 AM TO 5:00 PM SUNDAY-FRIDAY OPEN AT 8:00 AM SATURDAYS

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
