Kayaking on the Esopus
The Delaware River – In the fisheries of the Delaware River, anglers can hook everything from Shad and Smallmouth Bass on the East Branch, to Wild Brown and Rainbow Trout on the West Branch. Looking to challenge your wading and casting skills? Fish the ever-changing main stem of the Upper Delaware, home to some the area’s biggest catches.
The Neversink River – Gordon’s source of inspiration for developing American dry fly fishing originated on the Neversink and today, countless flyrodders flock to this tranquil spot to connect with the river’s place in fly fishing history and nag a few prime catches.
The Esopus Creek – Home to world-class trout fishing, the Esopus is a haven for varieties including wild Rainbow and Brown Trout. The Esopus is essentially a tailwater flowing from the Shandaken portal, and casting with nymphs and streamers is recommended.
Batavia Kill – Find less-fished waters along the Batavia Kill and a variety of wild trout species including Brown, Brook and Rainbow Trout. Yearling and two-year-old Brown Trout are stocked annually on the lower 19 miles of the Batavia as well.
