This 15" brown trout took a small emergent sparkle pupa on a large Catskill river.
Here's an underwater post-release picture of a 15" brown trout I caught in a clear Catskill river.
A beautiful deep current tongue runs along a manmade wall on a famous Catskill river.
This is one of the most famous trout streams in the country.
Here's the most famous pool in the world. I was shocked that the fishing was so good--I had expected such a legendary place to be overfished. While it certainly sees a lot of pressure, it's still possible to have the whole 300-yard pool to yourself once in a while, and in the fall it doesn't get anywhere close to the combat fishing it sees during the major hatch seasons. It supports a terrific population of the most picky free-rising trout I've ever seen.
Here are the empty nymphal cases of Isonychia bicolor
mayflies which hatched in early fall in the Catskills by crawling out onto a rock.
