Upper Delaware Fly Fishing


The Upper Delaware RIver System is steep in history. Located in New York's Catskill Mountains these waters have been luring Trout fishermen for centuries. 

Today the Upper Delaware river system is widely recognized as one of the top Trout producing systems in the USA. All of our rivers boast nice population of wild trout and one of the most diverse aquatic insect population found anywhere. Our waters are truly a Fly Fishermen's dream location!


The Baxter House guide staff has earned a solid reputation as the most knowledgable professional guides in the region. We are not bound to any one location. Each day we choose our fishing beats based on current river and weather conditions as well as an intimate knowledge of the regions insect hatches.


On any given day our guides may choose to put you out on the Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek, The East Delaware, West Delaware, Main Stem Delaware or any of the lesser known, off the radar Trout streams in our beautiful region. We are pretty hard core, we fish until dark and go out in all weather conditions.


On most days our guests will have the opportunity to take mature Trout on Dry Flies, Nymphs and Streamer flies. Our guides love to hunt Giant Brown trout with over-sized streamer flies.


Give us a call today, we would love to share our knowledge of the Best Trout Fishery in the East!
