Spring sense-sations

Tuning in to the shifting of the seasons is restorative on many levels. In the Upper Delaware River region, it’s time to shake off the shackles of the snow-laden season and wake up our winter-weary senses to spring’s arrival.

It should go without saying that this can’t be accomplished from the comfort of one’s couch. Reaping the benefits of interacting with the natural world requires that we actually go outside to experience the beauty and mystery of all that is happening now.

Opportunities to re-connect are all around, including two Earth Day festivals coming up this weekend.  Read more

The big ones are coming, but when?

After the hard winter that we’ve just endured, fly fisherman up and down the Delaware are anxiously awaiting the “big ones.” I don’t mean big fish. I mean big bugs, the first really significant hatch of large mayflies: the Hendricksons. Once they appear in force, these lovely mayflies can get the trout into a feeding frenzy all along the Delaware, its East and West branches and tributaries like the Lackawaxen and the Mongaup, not to mention the hallowed waters of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.  Read more
