The Beaverkill Angler is located minutes from Junction Pool when the Willowemoc ends and the Beaverkill doubles in size. The Beaverkill River continues from Junction Pool until it meets the East Branch of the Delaware River. Both rivers are true freestones and flow quickly for a stream east of the Mississippi. They offer well over a dozen historic pools as well as many smaller pools and pocket water that all ...
hold fish. Due to efforts of years past both rivers have excellent public access which gives everyone options, even on busy weekends.
Our season officially starts April 1st and our biggest early season hatch is the Hendrickson Mayfly which typically happens towards the end of the month. May and June our the peak dry fly months with numerous caddis, mayfly and stonefly hatches. As we get into July and August weather typically dictates success. A cool and wet year, like 2009, can offer some fantastic fishing as angling pressure diminishes. The Fall brings back more dry fly fishing and pleasant weather, you also have a shot as some true monsters that migrate upstream to spawn. The East, West, and Main stem of the Delaware are close by and we fish and monitor the conditions on those rivers as well. We typically have excellent fishing opportunities all season, if you wondering if you should make the trip visit our website or give us a call.
The bulk of the dry fly activity is taking place very early in the morning, or in the evening just before it gets dark. Nymphing the fast water during the day can be productive even when the sun is shining bright...as long as water temperatures remain below 70.
The river has dropped nicely since last weeks rains (which are always needed in July), and is in good shape right now. More rain is possible Monday or Tuesday so we will have to wait and see what effect that has on conditions. For daily updates head over to our website and check out our fishing report.
