Neversink River Fly Fishing

The 9th most popular fly fishing river in New York.

North of Poughkeepsie near Woodbourne, the Neversink River offers amazing dry fly fishing across both its sections.

The 19 mile upper stretch of the Neversink River is above the Neversink Reservoir and stretches to its headwaters in the Catskill Preserve. Most of this stretch is private, although there is a small public stretch just above Denning on the East Branch of the Neversink River.

The lower tailwater section is below the Neversink reservoir and runs all the way down to the Delaware River. In this popular tailwater fishery, you can expect to find rainbow trout, brown trout, and brook trout.

Overall, Neversink River is the 9th most popular fly fishing river of all 32 fly fishing spots in New York.
