Reel Fishing : The Catskill region is home to the waters of seven major river systems including the East and West Branches of the Delaware River, Esopus Creek, Beaverkill River and Willowemoc Creek, the birthplace of fly fishing. These, along with their countless tributaries offer fine cold-water fishing. If river fishing isn't your preference, the Cannonsville and Pepacton Reservoirs offer endless shores and opportunities for trophy-sized trout and other species. It's Very Reel.

"Fishing is much more than fish....it is the great occasion when we may return to the simplicity of our forefathers."
