Esopus Creek in the Catskill Mountains

Guided Fly Fishing & Instruction

Learn fly fishing on the famous Esopus Creek

First-timer or experienced angler? Either way, you’ll experience an incredible day of fly fishing on the pristine waters of the Catskill Mountains. Crash course for first-timers takes approximately 1+ hours of trip time depending on the number of participants.

Half-day trips are available with a morning or afternoon departure. AM slot usually starts at 9:00. PM slot around 2:00 or later if we’re aiming to fish the end of day hatch.

Additional notes for first-timers:

Fly fishing is done in the river not from shore. We wear waders to keep us dry and specialized non-slip boots that help minimize unwanted falls. We rent waders from our shop, but if you have an unusually large or small foot or frame size, please let us know when you inquire. Boots are available up to men’s 13.
