Daily Fishing Report

Wednesday, June 3rd

 

Phase 1 in reopening.

Currently, due to state requirements we are closed to all walk in traffic and have to function with very limited staff. We can offer curbside pick-up for orders placed by phone or online. We hope to be open again to walk in customers, on June 9th when Sullivan County reaches phase 2. 

We will continue to do everything we can to support our customers. We are also offering local delivery or ship our order with USPS or UPS. Most orders go out the same day!

Guide Trips & Lessons

We are again able to offer guide trips and beginner lessons. We have very limited availability as some of our guides have elected to take the season off or working for us in other ways. Give the ship a call to setup a trip!

 

Area Overview

In an unpredictable year the hatches continue to be provide the stability many of use need in times like these. It is buggy out there with all of our usually "bug week" hatches and great conditions and weather for anglers.

Hatches are currently Green Drakes (8), Isonychia (10), Blue Sedge Caddis (14), Sulphurs (14), March Browns (10 - 12), Gray Foxes (14), Paraleps "Blue Quills" (18), Blue Winged Olives (18 - 20), Midges (20 - 24).

Beaverkill / Willowemoc Rivers

 The Beaverkill and Willowemoc Creek are clear and wadeable. The overcast weather and light rains have kept the Beamoc in nice conditions. Hatches have not been huge, but very steady throughout the day and evening. Rising fish have been quite numerous and the nymphing has been fantastic!

Upper East Branch of the Delaware River

The dam is putting out 136 cfs. The whole river is a great wadeable level. This is not a good flow for floating and the lower rivers are a better option.

March Browns are a weaker hatch for the Upper East but Sulphurs and Paraleps shine! Green Drakes are showing up with a few spinner out also. Regardless of where you fishing during the day, it is a great place to end the day.

Lower East Branch of the Delaware River

This is a great flow for wade anglers and one of the best rivers to take advantage of the March Brown hatches! Spinner falls have been good, but they are not always easy to catch and take more luck the anything. The nymphing not only has ideal conditions, but these hatches love the big riffles of this section of river.

West Branch of the Delaware River

The West has 574 cfs coming out of the dam. Sulphurs are showing in great numbers with March Browns and drakes in the lower sections. There have been a lot of people, so unless I can find a quite space I tend to not want to join the crowds.

Main Stem of the Delaware River

A great flow for boats and wade anglers! Your best option to float in the system. March Browns, Gray Foxes, Sulphurs and evening spinners have been out on the Main! Green Drakes are showing up more and more along with BIG stone flies. It is a hard place to beat right now and provides fishing throughout the day.

Neversink Report

Getting a little low. March Browns are out along with Sulphurs and Dorotheras. Fishing has been quite good but the lower flows can be a challenge.
