Fly Fishing Report for the upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers
With fall fishing here, anglers have an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounds our rivers this time of year. With the rainfall we have gotten the past few weeks, the rivers are in an ever changing state which is allowing a great mix between streamer and dry fly fishing. Great olive and caddis hatches are being reported throughout the Willow, Beaverkill and Delaware. You can still expect to see some ISOs in certain areas as well.
This is the time of year that you can have productive days by blind casting large mayflies prospecting pools. We have been have great days blind casting large ISO's and other large mayfly patterns along bubble lines and riffles.
Wade fishing may be restricted due to high flows. Drift boat fishing is the safest way to fish on the Delaware rivers and certain sections of the upper beaver and willow may be wadeable.
We are staying productive with both streamers and dry flies. Nymph fishing can still be done mostly on the beaver kill right now.
We have some prime fall slots available with our guides. Feel free to call the shop to book your autumn fly fishing adventure.
