Neversink River Description

This river is a legendary Catskill river that was divided in 1955 by the New York City when they constructed a water supply reservoir. This event created a downriver tail-water that extends for about six miles of still pools and slow riffles. Long leaders and delicate presentations are the rule on this stretch of river that is the home to both wild and domestic brown trout.
