Trout Season begins on April 1st! As always, the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, in Livingston Manor, has a host of activities to bring in the new season. Join them for the Catskill Legends on April 1st and the Season Opener on April 2nd.
Who is a Catskill Flyfishing Legend? They are the fly fishing pioneers who: discovered and appreciated the richness of the rivers and streams in the Catskills; the champions of our waters who protected every inch that flowed; authors and historians who shared the romance of the Catskill experience; they are those who have kept the Catskills alive for future generations to enjoy.
On April 1, 2016, they will recognize Stan Cooper Jr., Ray Smith and Tom Satterthwaite.
These inductees will be honored at dinner at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center, at 5:30 p.m. Seating is limited; to make a reservation, visit our Program and Event page at www.cffcm.com, and under the Catskill Legends page you can make a reservation or call 439-4810 to make a reservation. $50 for members and $65 for non-members.
