Fishing in Upstate New York

The never-ending supply of reservoirs, ponds, lakes, rivers, streams, and creeks in the Catskills create the perfect environment to cast a line. These various waterways provide prime fly fishing conditions, and the availability of professional guides help both seasoned and novice fishers to hone their skills.
