The Delaware River in the N.E. corner of Pa flows between the Endless Mountains of PA and the Catskills of NY, only  a 2-1/2 hour drive from NYC.  The Delaware system includes the fa East Branch, the West Branch and the Main Stem Delaware , which flows 365 miles to the sea.  All rivers are big, wide and gentle for wading.


The Upper Delaware system includes about 150 miles of blue ribbon wild trout water, all wadeable and also floatable with drift boats.  A few years back Outdoor Life Magazine ranked the Delaware / Beaverkill Branch the #2 wild trout river in North America , after the Big Horn.  It’s pretty hard to beat the Missouri, Bitterroot and Clark Fork in Montana, but I would definitely rank it as one of the top 5 rivers in the world for catching big wild brown and rainbow trout on dry flies.  Expect to hook big browns and rainbows between 16 and 24 inches on dry flies.  The insect diversity of the Delaware is truly amazing with hatches of mayflies, caddis and stoneflies practically every day from early April until late October.  This river has a wider window of opportunity than almost any river I know.

We are talking big, clear, tailwater rivers here with lots of gentle riffles and long pools with highly selective trout!  The correct fly and presentation is a must to hook these big guys.    You will catch more big trout on the Beaverkill Branch with a small dry fly than any other trout river (See photos of Delaware trout here)!

The Brophy Estate allows you to stay right on the East Branch with a full mile of private access.  Big clean rooms, super friendly staff and great guides that know the rivers and the bugs intimately.  Most of your fishing will be from drift boats, but you will have plenty of opportunities to wade if you desire!
