Come to experience the "marriage of the waters" and enjoy some great fishing - Catskill Mountain style, rustic cabins on the banks of the East Branch of the Delaware river, one of three great Catskill rivers.

We are just 7 miles from: the BeaverkillWillowemoc, Horton, and Chilloway.  And just 10 miles from the West Branch of the Delaware River.

Pepacton Cabins are located in the town of Colchester, a wonderland any time of the year.  Colchester is within the Catskill Forest Preserve and Game Management Areas.  Miles of beautiful scenery provides a wealth of opportunities for outdoor activities.  Flowing rivers glide past green mountainsides and offer many miles of water for fishing and canoeing enthusiasts.  Our cabins provide easy access to hunting, snowmobiling, skiing, hiking and bird-watching.                     top

East Branch -Delaware River -"Pepacton" the unknown wild trout river.  Fed by the cold waters of the Pepacton Reservoir, this 16 mile stretch of great fishing is the best kept secret among fly-fishermen.

West Branch -Delaware River - "Oquago" the most renowned wild trout fishing river East of the Rockies.  Starting 10 miles above Hawley's Station continuing through Walton, Deposit, Hancock provides 30 miles of wild trout fishing.

Beaverkill - World famous fly fishing stream where the roots of fly-fishing began.  Special "catch" and "release" area.  Public fishing access at Chilloway Bridge.

Main Delaware River - The confluence of the East and West Branches and the Beaverkill - 16 miles to the public fishing access on the N.Y. and PA line.  Special fishing area where NY fishing licenses can be used on the PA side. 

Pepacton Reservoir - Record size brown trout of 20 pounds plus abound in this man made fishermen's paradise.   6400 acres of pure clear blue water to depths of 120 feet and 35 miles of shore line.   Special permit (free) is necessary along with N.Y. fishing license.  N.Y.C. Water Supply Reservoir.  Beautiful and unspoiled.

Majestic Bald Eagles soar the river waterways, along with Ospreys and many other raptors.  Large numbers of Canadian Geese, Mallards, Eider,  Black, Mergansers and Wood ducks can be sighted on the river.  The water's edge provides opportunities to view many song-birds within their hedge and meadow habitats.  We have provided plantings and man-made nesting sites for song-birds and we also actively feed the birds year round.  Hobbyist of all levels can add to their bird lists.     top
