Default Want to hit the beaverkill, NY

Hey yall just found out I still have a personal day to kill before the end of the year. So I figured why not head to NY and do some fishing. Thought about going for salmon but remember it always being packed. That and I only will be taking a 3 day weekend. So I figured trout in the beaverkill might be fun since its only a 2 hour drive to hancock from me.

I'm looking to go in October or possibly November. Any thoughts on this?

I'll be tenting so anyone recommend a place? Otherwise I'll just hit some state park.

Any good spots I should focus on? Was looking at where the beaverkill meets the east branch.

Hoping for some ideas/suggestions. And as always if you're wanting to come with me I'd be happy.

It will depend upon the water levels and such, but if you PM me with your email, I'll send you a map with the pools. You can check Gary LaFontaine's "Fly Fishing the Beaverkill" for some suggestions as well. Was there last weekend and the flows were low. They should be much higher when you go. My recommendations: Cairns, Barnhart's and Trestle pool or Horton Brook.

You also may want to hit the Willowemoc.

I was also looking at the willowemoc just outside of Roscoe looks pretty promising. It looks like October is going to be my month. Spoke to local fly shop and they said its the best fall month.

Pm sent.

Thanks
Jason

Hi,

Take some pictures of the fall foliage and stream side colors and post a few of them.

I lived in Zena (a hamlet of Woodstock) when I was young and have fond memories of the Catskills and fall colors.

I have to get back there during the Fall one of these years.

Also check local fly shops like Catskill Flies.....if you are 2 hours from Hancock I certainly would never rule out the Upper Delaware in the fall.....within 1/2 hour of the Beaverkill/Roscoe area
