A Wild Premier Trout River, the West Branch of the Delaware River is known for some of the best Trout fishing in the United States. A Wild Premier Trout River is defined by NYS Department of Environmental Conservation as: “New York’s most productive large wild trout streams. They provide an exceptional wild trout fishing experience with the potential to catch a trophy-sized wild trout.” It is rare to find a property for sale on the West Branch of the Delaware River, which makes this a great opportunity to catch this one while it’s available. Catch trophy sized Trout right out of your front door.
But fishing isn’t everything. Folks from all over the world have enjoyed a float down this river in kayak’s, canoes and tubes, which they rented from OARS, an acronym for Outdoor Adventure Recreation Service, located nearby in Hancock, NY. What a trip it would be to float from miles upstream, right to your front yard!
A fresh new survey details the 10.02 acres of lush riverfront land. From the house looking toward the West Branch of the Delaware River, there is a beautiful flat lawn with a plantation of tall, shady Spruce trees, Black Walnut trees and a few Apple trees. The deer love these apples and linger on the property frequently. The back of the property is rugged and wooded, ideal for hiking and investigating the rock outcroppings and various wildlife it harbors. These hills were occupied by the Indians years ago and remnants of their existence, such as documented Rock Shelters, have been found on this well known geographical landmark, known as Point Mountain.
If you’re seeking the benefits of rest and relaxation, the fun of canoeing and kayaking, the challenge of fly fishing for wild trout and the serenity of a retreat in the Catskill Mountains, then this property just may be for you.
