Schoharie Creek Description

The Schoharie Creek is located in the heart of the northern Catskills and flows into the Schoharie Reservoir which is hte first link in the chain of the extensive reservoir system that supplies New York City with some of the purest drinking water in the world. Not being a tailwater stream it has all the characteristics of a real, wild, mountain, trout stream. Its gin clear water makes for breath taking beauty ...

Techniques & Tips

Slow patient fishing will be your only path to success right now. Most fish will be located near or on the bottom zones of the stream. This is the most comfortable place for them with current conditions. They will not move far outside their comfort zone. Let your streamer or heavy nymph settle to the bottom of the stream before slowly stripping it back. Occasionally stop your strip before starting up again. Remember these fish are not going to be aggressive right now. You must put the fly in their mouths to get them to feed.

7-Day Forecast

This week will be fairly mild with most days in the middle fifties. Mornings will still be on the cool side with temperatures starting out in the upper thirties. The best fishing will be in the afternoons. Small Black Stoneflies and Blue Winged Olives will be the prominent insects this week.
