Posts: 1Back in the late 60’s thru 1978 we fished the lower Nerversink at Oakland Valley. Caught a number of nice browns and rainbows. Idea to fish the area came from Ray Bergman. In his book Trout he mentioned fishing in Oakland Valley by the bridge. Now I think a new bridge crosses over to a camp ground.
Beautiful water but probably all private today. Never made it up to the gorge area.
Any update would be fun to read.
Thx.

Yes he does mention it; wouldnt it be cool togo back in time and see/fish that stretch of the river during his time and still be able to fish it today to compare? I wonder if the fishing was better? My guess would be no due to stocking efforts and more of our brethren practicing catch and release; no doubt that the area would be less developed though.

I have never fished any part of the Neversink. I can remember driving across it on Route 17 on my way to the Willowemoc and Beaverkill from 1965 until 1984 but I kind of knew then that access was difficult and most of the water below the reservoir didn't hold many trout.

I do know a fellow now who lives over on the east side of the Hudson who fishes the Gorge a couple of times every spring because there is a very Hendrickson emergence there. He has told me often how it is quite a hike just to get down into the gorge and very tiring to get out after a long day of fishing.
Catskill fly fisher for fifty-five years.
