Springing from Winnisock Lake, just a few yards north of the divide separating the Delaware and Hudson River drainages, Esopus Creek flows for about 20 miles and feeds the Ashokan Reservoir. About a third of the way along, its volume quadruples with the water entering it from Schoharie Reservoir via the Shandaken Tunnel, locally called the portal. From here to the reservoir, the creek’s personality changes utterly, from a free-flowing stream to a managed tailwater. The 8,300-acre Ashokan Reservoir averages 47 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 190 feet. The largest body of water in the Catskills, it is halved by the “Dividing Weir,” a dam that separates it into upper and lower basins, with an 18-inch difference in elevation between them. Key species: Rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, black crappie, and brown trout.
