East Branch Fish Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Pouring out of the high reaches of Tug Hill Plateau, the East Branch of Fish Creek drops about 1,600 feet on its circuitous 30-mile trip to its juncture with the West Branch, a mile south of the village of Blossvale. Fast, wide, relatively shallow, and punctuated by countless pools and channels, this freestone stream resembles a western river more than an eastern creek. Tirelessly running through the “Hill,” it cuts Central New York’s most spellbinding gulf, a druidic setting where sheer cliffs tower anywhere from 20 to 50 feet above the water, offering a truly wild fishing experience. Key species: Brown trout, rainbow trout, and brook trout"
