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!

9/20/21:  Waking up to a brisk 47 degrees, clear night full moon, makes for a chilly morning. Trees are getting more color and the leaves on a gust of wind are starting to fall. Rivers are the same Beaverkill and Willowemoc in great shape to wade, East and West branches best to float, limited wade on the East, Neversink is in good shape but bug activity has been quiet. Today in the Catskill's 71 degrees, sunshine this morning with a few clouds this afternoon, SSE wind 5-10 mph.

9/19/21:  Guided yesterday afternoon, two clients both put Rainbows in the net, 5 to be exact, did a dropper rig, Iso, soft hackle and a BH prince nymph, all three flies were successful. Beaverkill and Willowemoc in Great shape, West and East branches good for floating, East is very limited in wading. Neversink is in good shape. Bugs I would carry Iso's, Cahill's both Light and Orange, Olives, Spinners, Cinnamon and October Caddis.  Today the high in the Catskill's 72 degrees with a North wind 5-10 mph.

9/18/21:  East and West branches remain high good for floating, East is very limited in wading.  Neversink is the better of the Tailwaters to fish. Beaverkill and Willow are in good shape to wade and running clear.  Fished the Willowemoc yesterday afternoon placed a few small browns in the net. Iso's and Olives were the trick. But overall not much bug activity.  Today in the Catskill's the high wil be near 78 degrees, passing shower this morning, then becoming sunny. Winds NW 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!
