I, too, went fishing....but mustn't tell anyone where. The flies I caught fish on (if I caught fish, and I'm not saying about that either) are secret. Well, they're not exactly secret because everybody knows what bugs they are...but which exact bugs..I'm not sayin'. Also, if any of you saw a guy fishing and thought it was me - it wasn't. I wear camo and walk on my knees. I hope that you will enjoy and profit from this fishing report.

I seen those two guys last season using those telescopic centerpin float rods.. they are russians and they eat everything they catch..they use worms and mealworms.. best thing to do is keep the pool pictures offline.. report anything suspicious or illegal to the proper authorities

I remember releasing a huge rainbow under 17 overpass on the willo years ago around this time..definitely was one of those private stockings.. also some of the state ponds had private brooktrout stockings up by the recreational park state camps (bear springs) not sure how those programs are run or supported. Would be very benificial to restock any native brook trout waters up there.. all of them get pounded anyway.. floods probably hit them the hardest.. also noticed less amphibians such as frogs and salamanders and newts .. witnessed how those huge floods deplete most everything .. that is what the DEC is in business for.. promote the habitate and conserve it for our enjoyment..not monitor it and decide it be off limited preservation land . This is why I get up and mad when I see stretches of posted signs on company utility poles such as those recent ones along the lower East branch after the firemen field. No one should be allowed to own such property water between that public rd.and water... makes no sense to me

That's exactly what I thought. I had always thought they wanted to keep the native brookie strain pure??
I agree, those small strips of land between the roads and the rivers should at least be public access............Power to the People, lol

From what I understand, the Brook Trout, for the most part can not survive in the rivers as they are now except for the upper reaches and smaller colder natural brooks. The temperatures are just too warm to sustain them. Long gone are the days of Hemlock shaded banks on the Beaver kill that kept the river cool. I caught a nice brookie a few years ago on the Beaver Kill and saw a couple caught on the Upper East as well.

my neighbor up on the EB seen otters...to me or any fisherman , this is pretty bad news imho.. I seen lots of mink too this season flushing little fish from under the rocks looking off the bridges..Bottomline is, the predators and the internet advertising links especially are overwhelming the natives as well as the fewer stockings the DEC does about the past decade.. I definitely see the difference .. oh the deep pools have fish but nothing like a decade ago.. anyone else notice too many them fish ducks? they too too forage on the little natives depleting what there is in the streams. NYS needs to adopt a better stocking program for the Delaware watershed system. between the floods and internet research technolgies.. it is the least they can do for our fishing license fees. They do not even stock the reservoirs like they use to do.. too many greedy thugs with deep pockets are in control imho
