I have fished a couple of different stretches of the Esopus this year.Could you tell me what stretch of the creek these pictures are from?The clarity of the water tells me it is somewhere above the Shandaken tunnel.

These pictures are from way up in the headwaters near Slide Mountain.

Thanks for the quick reply.I was actually on this stretch this summer,but the water was so much lower,much too low,in fact.I ended up going to a spot on the other side of Rt 28 above Big Indian.Water was low,but fishable there.Got 2 small brookies,so I will go back,next week as a matter of fact.I will explore that area around and above Oliveria next spring.Fished another tributary stream a couple weeks ago,Woodland Valley Creek,down stream of here,just above Phoenecia.Small stream,should be nice in the spring.
