Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers


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 producing daily insect hatches and lots of rising trout. Bot
