More Rain Yesterday The autumn air has our local trout active and there are plenty of insects emerging to bring the fish to the surface. This is great news for anyone with a drift boat. The big question for wade anglers is when will the rain take a long enough break for the river flows to drop to fish-able levels. Yesterday was not the day as more heavy downpours hit the region just before dark. This most recent round of rain fell on already high water and quickly raised it e
Free Fishing Weekend! This weekend NY State is offering another free fishing weekend. No license will be needed this Saturday and Sunday to fish throughout the state.

Everywhere else is above the threshold for safe wading. With that
Heavy Rainfall and rising Rivers Yesterday heavy rainfall moved through the area and dumped a lot of water in our region. Our rivers are on the rise again. Today options are slim for wade anglers. Drift Boat anglers will have full run of the system. I expect to see good streamer fishing over the next few days, especially while the water has turbidity. This morning the Main Delaware has tripled in flow. The hot dry fly action we have been having on the Main Stem will be on te
Out of the fog comes Mr. Brown WEEKEND OUTLOOK This weekend anglers visiting the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers will find good conditions all around. Just about all of our local rivers are wadable and fishing well. Overall angler pressure is very light. Over the last 2 weeks I have been floating full days with the majority of the river being void of humans.

Currently dry fly and nymphing ar the best tactics The fish are around the d
