Most of our trips are focused on fly fishing the Schoharie and Esopus rivers due to their productivity and our proximity to these rivers. If the water of these rivers happens to be too high, low or discolored, our guides can take you to one of the many other rivers or small lakes in our area. That kind of versatility allows you to have the best possible fishing experience.

Anyone sixteen years and older must have a New York State Fishing License.
