Fishing in the Hudson River Valley

Hi, we are going to be in the lower part of the Hudson River Valley ( between NYC and Albany) in late April. We are looking for places to do fly fishing. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Esopus Creek
Not a fisherman myself, but I know that folks fly fish the Esopus Creek which is near Kingston, NY.

I googled Esopus Creek and found this website with info:

That’s probably convienient since it’s not far from the hudson and the thruway…

There are also other rivers in the catskills area further away from the Thurway that are probably fly fished, like the Neversink, the Basha Kill, etc. etc.

All of these are west of the hudson.


Check up on both Delaware R. branches…
Nice browns.

There are also nice stretches on both Upper Beaverkill and Willowemoc…at least, there Used to be…

Fly Fishing
You can try Colgate Lake in Tannersville off of route 23c nice lake great fishing.
