Buffleheads arrive in the fall during the latter part of October. They can be seen on lakes until the water freezes. This species is a migrant; they head back to northern Canada in the middle of spring. Buffleheads are also diving ducks, but this species favors aquatic invertebrates and plant material.

Watching wildlife in the winter is a little more of a challenge than it is during the rest of the year. For one, there is the weather. You have to drive or hike to where you want to view wildlife, so let’s hope

'Where are the snows of yesteryear?'

As I await our next snowfall along the Delaware, that poetic invocation of inevitable change drifts through my mind. I am thinking of another great American river 2,000 miles away, where life and snow are intertwined.

Mid-summer fly fishing report

During the summer months, everything about the river environment happens at a much slower pace. Every year by our current date the insect hatches and the trout’s behavior fall into a very predictable daily routine. In stark contrast to the slower trout fishing, it is prime time for pursuing smallmouth bass with the fly.

The Lackawaxen River is one of our region’s most beautiful waterways.

River Reflection

With summer’s heat and humidity in full swing lately, we make our way to water—the cherished Delaware and Lackawaxen rivers, as well as other lakes and streams throughout the Upper Delaware River region. Such waters are a primary reason that many of us choose to live here or to visit the area.
