Thursday April 19, 2018; “Fishing the tail waters of the West Branch Delaware River”
George F. Johnson Memorial Library: 7:00 PM (informal fly tying demo at 6:30)
Ever wanted to fish well known trophy waters? No need to take a long drive or take a trip out West for trophy wild fish. This river is located within an hour’s drive down RT-17/I-86 from Binghamton.
The West Branch Delaware River below the Cannonsville Dam is considered one of the best fly fishing trout streams in the United States.
BC Flyfishers’ April meeting speaker will be NYS guide Tim Barrett. Tim will discuss many subjects in regards to this fantastic wild trout stream. He will provide a brief (and fascinating) history of the river and how it came to be a superb wild trout fishery. Tim’s presentation will cover the species of fish, access points, hatches, Hatch timing, special regulations, and the various presentation techniques you should employ to catch these fish.
Tim is a seasoned guide with over 20 years’ experience on not only the West Branch-Delaware but on the Salmon River as well. If you are looking for excellent help, you are encouraged to take one of Tim’s business cards and ask him to contact you after the meeting. Tim offers both drift boat and wade trips. Tim is an excellent teacher and truly enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge with others.
