Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers

All river at great flows for summer Last weeks heavy rainfall had all of our river up and running heavy with turbidity. Over the weekend all of that cleared up and fine fishing conditions returned to most of our local waters. While the waters were up we had a great run of hot streamer fishing that lasted a few days. Over that time all of our guides were running hard. We had some nice fish come to net on both the East and West Delaware. Below are some shot from a family trip that guides Chris and Marty did over the weekend. We have also been hitting the water every night with several evening dry fly trips daily. The action is steady and reliable. With the current conditions the good action sh

Heavy Rainfall and Bank Full Rivers! I finally have something new to report. The heavy rainfall that has been moving through most of the east has left some substantial water in the Upper Delaware River and throughout the Catskills. The rainfall from the last few days has caused all of our rivers to rise. The extent of high water varies by location. Some of our smaller creeks experienced enough of a surge to cause localized flooding. Localized flooding also occurred in low ares along the Beaverkill, Willowemoc and Lower East Branch. The Upper East branch and Upper West Branch were not effected the same way. They actually rose to about perfect flows for fishing streamers and dry flies. Our gui

WEEKEND OUTLOOK Summer weather continues to have a firm grasp on the Upper Delaware and Catskill Regions. For well over a month there has not been much rainfall. This time period has been all sunny hot days. This string of hot dry weather has taken it's toll on our freestone rivers. Today the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Lower East Branch and Main Stem are flowing low and on the warm side. In great contrast the Upper East and Upper West Branches have good conditions due to the reservoirs releasing cold water into them. Right now our area is still offering some great opportunity for fishing! For Trout - The Upper East and Upper West branches have the proper conditions. The cold waters here are pr

Early Summer Outlook For the last 2 weeks summer weather has had a firm grip on the Upper Delaware River System and the Catskill Mountains. Our rivers, reservoirs, lakes and ponds are at or near normal summertime levels. In the coming weeks visitors to our area will have lots of options for chasing game fish with fly fishing or light spin tackle. The big issue at this time is deciding what type of fishing and the species to chase. Currently there is very reliable Trout fishing in our tailwater rivers. These icy cold rivers have good summer insect life and actively feeding trout every day. Our Reservoirs and the Delaware river are offering top quality fishing for Smallmout Bass. July and Augu

A West Branch Brown from this weekend Over the last few days the Upper Delaware Region is in a Heatwave! It has been a long time since we have had bright sun and temperatures north of 90 degrees. There is no better way to beat this heat than chasing trout in the Icy cold water of the West or East Delaware. This weekend the release rates were increased and our guests were treated to both the cooling effect of 40 degree water and lots of eager trout. For the next 2 months the action on these rivers will remain steady. Sulfurs and Blue Wing Olives will be the main staple each day. At times Trico's Isonychia, Cahills and Caddisflies will spur some feeding. During summer Midges are also a steady
