Beaverkill River, Willowemoc Creek and the Delaware River system.

Well we got snow, not much but it was pretty wintery this morning. However, it won't stick around and the balance of the week looks nice. We have to see what the river levels will be since today they are high and everything, but possibly feeder creeks (your best option today), have color.

We are now open 7 days a week from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

TIP OF THE WEEK - Rivers are still high and wading is limited in many places. You could see some midges, olives, and little stoneflies hatching but with water conditions and temps the way they are your best bet is to focus on subsurface techniques. Stock your box with nymphs and streamers for now.

The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Both rivers are off color and should continue to rise throughout the day. Most feeder creeks are off color too.

The East Branch of the Delaware River - The EB is already up and wading will not be possible today.

The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- Both rivers can be floated, but wading is either limited or not possible. Streamers have been the most effective way to fish these rivers lately. Expect both rivers to be off color and water levels to increase.
