    esopus creek

    have not been there in years, actually since the time when something like 20 inches of snow melted in a couple of days and changed the rivers course at a couple of spots. was just curious how it has been fishing earlier on this year

    Re: esopus creek

    Fished there the last two years in a row and didn't catch squat. Was fishing in the DEC reservoir. Haven't been up yet this year but will be up there in the next few weeks.
    Spoke to a few other fishermen and finally found someone who caught fish. Guy caught two on a PT.

    Still beautiful up there !!

    I fished there one day this year, the first time in at least ten years. Went with a friend and we caught a ton of small rainbows and browns. Mostly prospecting caddis dries and a nice spinner fall in the evening. This was all down stream of the portal.

    Whatever happened to that Esopus trip you guys were talking about getting together for this fall? Did that fall through or did it die with tristatetrout?
