The Inn's Mile of River

Inn guests have private access to one mile of the upper Beaverkill, the fabled trout stream just steps away from our porch, which overlooks the river. The fishing season is open from April 1st through October 15th.

On the blue-ribbon trout stream where Catskill fly-fishing began, the tradition continues, with The Beaverkill Valley Inn’s one mile of the upper Beaverkill’s hallowed pools, runs and riffles. The river is fed by clear, cold waters tumbling down from high mountain tributaries. Using the classic flies for which the Beaverkill is renowned, cast your fly for brook, brown and rainbow trout in the storied waters fished by fly-fishing legends, Theodore Gordon and Lee Wulff.

The Beaverkill Valley Inn has just completed a multi-year program of carefully modulated stream habitat improvements which have markedly increased both the carrying capacity of the trout pools and the quality of holding lies on the upper Beaverkill.  Fishing has been fantastic throughout the summer of 2017 – trout are notably deep and strong and in prime condition – why don’t you join us on the river for what promises to be a superb autumn of sport.

Though the Inn offers access to private waters, you will still need to purchase a fishing license. Go to our page Fly Fishing Resources for information about New York State Fishing Licenses.
