Fishing spot information

Beaver Kill Beaver Kill Covered Bridge
Description of Fishery The Beaver Kill is divided into the upper and lower sections at the confluence with the Willowemoc Creek in Roscoe, NY. Both sections support wild brown trout. The upper section of the river supports a wild brook trout population that increases as you move upstream towards the headwaters. Rainbow trout are also scattered throughout the watershed as a result of both natural reproduction and non-DEC stockings in private sections of the river. The DEC annually stocks over 18,000 brown trout in the Beaver Kill and seasonal anadromous runs of American shad are reported in some years from the lower section.
