A wonderful opportunity to fish and eat and play and learn in an extraordinary spot at Ashokan Dreams

Come enjoy a weekend in the Catskill Mountains. Your hosts from Ashokan Dreams B&B and Catskill Mountain Angler will share their experiences with you to create an extraordinary weekend adventure in the heart of the Catskill Forest Preserve.

The Catskill Mountains have a magical quality about them. Famous for their historic resorts and music and arts festivals, there is also an exciting emergence of new local breweries, distilleries and eateries transforming our mountain communities. The Catskills’ pristine waterways are also the birthplace of American fly fishing and source of drinking water for New York City.

The Catskills offer the ideal classroom for a beginner fly fisherman to learn the practical skills to enjoy the sport. Catskill Mountain Angler will teach you those skills and introduce you to the charms of our Catskill trout waters. We can guide you to the famous pools and runs you have always read about, and help you experience fishing for wild trout.

Your lodging will be provided by the lovely Ashokan Dreams, a cozy B&B with the best views in the Catskills.
