Pack your gear and head to the Upper Delaware River for some of the best river fishing you’ll find in all of the Northeast. Field and Stream Magazine even named the Delaware River as one of their top-five smallmouth rivers in 2007. The warm water section below Callicoon contains a plentiful supply of smallmouth bass, walleye, and striped bass. Near the upstream reservoirs, where the water is colder, you’ll find large wild brown trout and rainbow trout. You can also find American shad here during spawning season, which takes place in May and June. Throughout the Delaware River, you can catch white-suckers, American eels, and fallfish. The Upper Delaware River also offers excellent opportunities for dry fly fishing for brown trout. The brown trout here average 15 inches, with some growing more than 20 inches. The rainbow trout here average 16 – 20 inches.
