The Beaverkill is perhaps the most famous fly fishing stream in America, largely because of its history, and it can still be a good one if you don't let its history spoil your expectations.
Almost every pool has a name and a story or three in the great works of fly fishing literature.

Two storied Catskill rivers become one at this pool.
This mighty trout stream was reduced to a trickle during the terrible drought this August. It ran crystal-clear and even though I could sight-fish to the trout they were beyond my skill to catch. I did well to briefly hook just one nice fish.
