Welcome to Trout-Whispers

Fish-Camp is my time with friends and guest. 
Where lessons are learned, laughter a must. Tears of pain when the big one comes off.  And the tales get bigger each year!

7/27/21:  Rivers remain in good shape for this time of the year. First time the Farmington in a long time the Farmington is under a 1000 CFS needs to drop some more. Water temps now maybe a concern as temps are in the 80's. Carry a thermometer now.  Catskill's Rivers have been fishing well with good hatches at night, high cool waters makes everyone happy, I hope it continues. Today the high will be near 85 degrees with a WNW wind of 5-10 mph, sunny this morning with increasing clouds and a threat of a thunderstorm.  Had a rare catch yesterday in a small mountain stream that for years I caught brookies and browns, I made a down and across cast with a stimulator and had a Rainbow eat it and was landed, only 7 inches if at that I was amazed!   Did this Bow travel way up here through the willowemoc or was it placed by the State?  Great colors not a mark on him, and as I much as I fish this little stream if stocked that I would catch more.  I think and would like to think it was a native that traveled up and made it it's home.

7/26/21:  Rivers are in great shape to wade exception being the West branch which is still high as is the Mainstem best to float these rivers. Bugs have been good on the East branch Sulphers, Cahill's and Olives, Beaverkill and Willowemoc great shape for this time of the year, Cahill's, Sulphers, Olives. Beetle and ant's have been taking fish also. Neversink is in good shape to wade and the fishing has been fair.  Today the high in the Catskill's will be near 83 degrees partly cloudy with a NW wind 5-10 mph.

7/25/21:  Waking up to some light rain enough to get the leaves wet. Rivers are in pretty good conditions for wading and clarity. West branch is to high still to wade best to float. East branch is now wadable just use some caution. Beaverkill and Willowemoc for the last two days has been fishing well late in the day to dark. Cahill's, Olives, Sulphers and Iso's.  During the day some nymphing has produced fish, ant's and beetles for dry. Yesterday this years second woman's clinic was held lots of fun, casting and learning presentation. Grace earned the biggest fish title as she placed a nice 14/15 inch brown in the net that ate a beetle. Today in the Catskill's 81 degrees, rain showers in the morning then some sun this afternoon. WSW wind 5-10 mph.

Exciting news!  I now own Trout Town Flies, LLC "formerly Catskill Flies" in Roscoe, New York, as most of you know I managed Catskill Flies last year and have been a guide there for many years.  While the name will change, our staff will return with the same philosophy and service provided in the past.  We will still tie the flies that Dennis did, as well as a few of our own. If you have any questions, please email me at flyshop@TroutTownFlies.com.  or Call the shop at 607-290-4107.  I am in the process of building a website for the store which is coming soon.

Updated Links page, now you can find daily weather reports for the destination you choose for fishing!
