While not sunny the weather has been pretty good. All the rivers are in good shape but it looks like its going to get a bit cooler over the weekend. We have had and should continue have some decent conditions for December.
Be sure to check your fishing regulations, as certain stretches of water closed to fishing beginning October 16th.
NOTE: THE SHOP WILL BE CLOSED ON SUNDAY, NOV 24th so we can attend the Fly Tying Symposium in New Jersey. Colder weather has returned to the Catskills, although it looks to be fairly mild for the next day or two. Hatch activity was pretty decent during our little warm spell, but subsurface techniques are still your best bet. Rivers are at good levels, and time is running out to fish some of them...the next round of closures is coming up at the end of the month.
We are now 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 - Nymphs and streamers are most productive right now. When the water temp drops so does a trout's metabolism, so it is important to really fish thoroughly and try to get that fly as close to them as possible.
The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Only the catch and release water is open. Probably best to wait until these rivers drop.
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 is the best bet right now for fishing.
