The Upper Delaware River
The Beaver Kill, East Branch, West Branch and the Main Stem of the Upper Delaware River are well-known for being the best fly-fishing on the East Coast. There are plenty of public fishing access sites along both the east and west branches and main stem of the Upper Delaware. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation provides these maps of the Hancock area for your convenience in locating public access.
There are several good fly fishing shops located with-in minutes of Fish's Eddy. Hancock, NY is located just 10 minutes away and Roscoe, NY located just 15 minutes away, where you can purchase fishing equipment or bait/lures, if you are not able to bring your own. We do ask that you please be respectful of common catch and release.
