This chapter now has over 400 members. It funds and mentors more “Trout in the Classroom” programs than any other chapter in the state of New York. Its fly fishing and fly tying schools raise large amounts of money every year. No one who attended that initial meeting ever imagined this magnitude of success.
Opening day of the New York State trout season will arrive in only 21 days. Do not forget, the West Branch and the Main Stem of the Delaware are not open until the first Saturday after April 10. The following tributaries are also not open until that date: Callicoon Creek from its mouth upstream to Hortonville, the North Branch of Callicoon Creek up to Gossweylers Pond, Hankins Creek from its mouth upstream to the falls at Mileses, Hoolihan Brook and Pea Brook. This is to protect spawning rainbow trout from being disturbed.
