Learn how to become a complete trout angler at the Orvis Complete Trout School at West Branch Angler, located in Hancock, NY, the heart of the Catskills. The Upper Delaware River System is a fly angler's paradise—steeped in the history of the earliest fly fishing in America, the Catskills are where it all began. The area offers many beautiful rivers to choose from, all offering excellent fish habitat and featuring varied species to hone your angling skills. Whether you fish the West Branch, the East Branch, or the Main Delaware, prepare to fall in love with the area and the fishery.
West Branch Angler Resort's upscale log cabin accommodations are nestled in a sprawling 300-acre park-like setting along a 2-mile private section of the West Branch of the Delaware River. Known as the Gateway to the Catskills, the surrounding mountain scenery and grounds are marvelous. Whether you're fly fishing on the East's most productive wild trout fishery, shooting a round of sporting clays or taking a riverside hike on one of our groomed trails, it's no wonder that the West Branch Angler is known as the premier outdoor destination in the East. Conveniently located only a few hours from the major metros of the Northeast.
In this comprehensive school, you will have the opportunity to fish from drift boats or get out and wade for different species of trout including brown and rainbow. Learn how to catch trout in many different scenarios. You will learn how to fish with dry flies, nymphs, and streamers, how to read the water, and how to select the right fly. The skills and memories you gain here will certainly last a lifetime.
