It looks like we'll be getting a bit of a break from the really cold weather, and have some daytime temps in the high 30s and even low 40s over the next few days. Ice is still an issue on the freestones, but as long as the wind isn't blowing there should be fishing on the West Branch.
Be sure to check your fishing regulations, as certain stretches of water closed to fishing beginning October 16th.
We are open Thursday through Monday from 9:00am - 4:00pm. The shop will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We will be updating our fishing report on Mondays and Thursdays.

TIP OF THE WEEK - Cold weather has made for poor fishing conditions on most rivers. Ice is still common on the freestones, but there is some fishing available on the West Branch.
The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Only the catch and release water is open. Water levels aren't bad, but ice is still clinging to the banks (and sometimes across the rivers) in most spots.
The East Branch of the Delaware River - The East Branch is closed.
The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- Only the lower West Branch is open downriver, its the border waters region. The West Branch has come up but is still at a decent level. The WB or Main Stem are probably your best bets in the area right now if you are determined to do some winter fishing.
