West Branch Delaware River near Hancock, New York
In the heart of rainbow country, there are also a few brown trout mixed in. This branch is cooler and smaller than the main branch so the fishing is a little bit better when the weather is warmer. Try using a 7-weight, sinking tip line and a small bead-headed two-toned streamer of white, orange, chartreuse, and red.
