The Catskill Fly Fishing Report

Fly

Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek and the Delaware River system.

Cool nights mean you don't have to rush to the river at first light. We've got decent water levels throughout the system, and anglers have had luck both subsurface and up top. Leaves can be an issue, but that comes as no surprise (it tends to happen every year!), and people are still catching fish.

We will be updating our fishing reports Monday and Thursday each week. We will also update any significant changes in river conditions as they occur.

Fall Hours Monday through Sunday - 9:00am - 4:00pm.

TIP OF THE WEEK - Rivers are in good fall condition and we are still seeing some decent hatches as the days go on. Long leaders and light tippets are helpful with some of the smaller flies you may have to use.

The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Both rivers are in good shape, although you will see some leaves in the water. A mix of streamers, nymphs, and dry flies should produce over the next few days. Hatches have included Olives, Midges, Caddis, and Isonychia. CHECK YOUR REGULATIONS. THE BK UPSTREAM OF THE 206 BRIDGE IS NOW CLOSED, AS IS THE WILLOWEMOC ABOVE THE IRON BRIDGE AT PARKSTON

The East Branch of the Delaware River - The river is up and off color, but does have wading at these flows. Olives, Isos, Midges, Caddis, and a few Sulphurs could be seen. CHECK YOUR REGULATIONS. THE EB ABOVE SHINHOPPLE IS NOW CLOSED, AS ARE EB TRIBS. THE REST OF THE EB IS NOW CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY>

The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- Both rivers are in pretty good shape with decent fishing. Olives, Isonychia, Midges, Caddis, and some Sulphurs have been seen lately. CHECK YOUR REGULATIONS. THE WB IS NOW CLOSED EXCEPT FOR THE AREAS THAT BORDER BOTH NY AND PA
