    Planning Catskill Trip

    Hello all,

    Myself and a friend are planning a trip to Roscoe in the near future. Neither of us has fished there before and would like some recommendations on where to fish, fly patterns, etc. I am a capable fly fisher, my friend , not so much, just looking to have a good time and catch some fish. Any help is greatly appreciated. We plan on driving down from the southern fingerlakes region early in the AM, fishing for a few hours, then driving home, no extended stay.

    Thanks
    Dave

    There are 3 fly shops in Roscoe. Catskill flies, Beaverkill Angler, Baxter House. All are capable of telling you where to go. You have the Beaverkill with pull off areas on pretty much the entire length of the river. Same with the Willow. Since it's going to be pretty damned hot, you're better off driving to the West Branch of the Delaware and fishing the ice cold water for more feisty fish. It's a 24 mile trip from Roscoe and worth the drive. There are also some fly shops in that area. West Branch Angler is right on the WB. Whitetail is a bit further downstream from the WBAngler, and you also have the DRC (Delaware River Club) on the Westbranch. All are great shops stocked with everything and anything you could ever want. There are plenty of access spots on the WB which will enable you to fish some pretty damned good water.

    Enjoy your trip.

    What Dennis said. The Beaverkill will be too hot to catch and release trout until the summer weather breaks. Fish the tailwaters which are much tougher for the newbie buddy, but will have hatches, cool water, and rising trout.

    The Dette Fly shop in Roscoe is the longest running family owed fly shop around.

    Re: Planning Catskill Trip

    Thanks for the responses folks. I am not sure how soon we'll be heading down that way but will keep in mind the water temps. It may not be for a while as my friend has to have some sort of heart procedure and not sure how long it will be before he will feel like going but he usually bounces back real quick ( not the first time for him). May not be until Sept time frame, certainly don't want to cut into hunting season but may have to, definitely want to make the trip.

    Thank Again
    Dave

    It's well worth the trip and since you might not make it until September, the rivers will have cooled down by then.

    Plenty of options depending on how much time you have
