FALL FISHING REPORTS WILL NOW BE UPDATED EVERY MONDAY AND THURSDAY
Yesterday morning started out cold and snowy but as the day went on it turned out to be...well, cold and rainy. That was a good thing though since we actually got enough water to noticeably effect the freestones! Both the Beaverkill and Willowemoc are still low, but they are much closer to historical norms today. It looks like today will be another cold day, but temps should jump into the 50s for the weekend,
BE SURE TO REVIEW YOUR FISHING REGULATIONS. As of October 15th the general trout season closed, so many of the upper river stretches, along with feeder creeks, are now closed to fishing. Some sections are now catch and release only. Full details can be found in the regulations book or online.
Fall Store Hours: Open Thursday-Monday 9:00am - 4:00pm; CLOSED Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

TIP OF THE WEEK - We've been having some cold nights, so there is no real rush to get out on the river first thing in the morning. Sometimes letting the water warm a bit this time of year can help. Don't expect big hatches, they tend to be more sporadic this time of year, but we have noticed some increased olive activity with the cooler weather. Subsurface techniques will still be your best bet for catching fish.
The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Both rivers are lower than normal making fishing more difficult. Take your time and fish carefully, the trout are there it just takes a little more work for them. Olives, Midges, Caddis, and even some Isonychia are still possible.
The East Branch of the Delaware River - The river came up the past few days making the fish feel a little more secure. Wading is still possible. Hatches have been fairly inconsistent, but you will likely see Olives, Caddis, and Midges with an outside shot at Isonychia
The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- Both rivers are good to float and have some wading this morning. The WB typically has some color to it, it is that time of year, so streamers can be a good option. Iconychia, Olives, Cahills, Midges, and some Caddis have been seen lately.
