West Branch Of The Delaware

I have been taking lessons in trout Spey casting with Wayne at River Of Life in Deposit, New York. My rod is an 11’3″ trout rod built by Robert Meisner that I am finding very difficult to learn how to cast but progress, not perfection. I was out with Wayne on the last day of the fishing season. The river was running around 900, higher than at any time I had been there before, and it was cold. I managed to hook into two large browns Wayne took these pictures. It was a good day, and my casting improved slightly.

Travel Insurance Again

Where is our trout?

I strongly suggest that voyagers use travel insurance. The policies I purchased have paid for themselves a couple of times on past trips. Travel Insurance makes life much less stressful. If you happen to get sick or hurt, they could save your life or even a small fortune. If your flight is delayed or canceled, you will be covered for additional charges, delays, meals, and hotel rooms. Remember to keep every single receipt; copy them on your cell phone scanner app.

Trout Stocking on the East Branch of the Delaware April 14, 2018

It was a great day and exciting watching the fish being released into the river. Later in the afternoon, I went back to the junction of the East Branch and the Bataviakill to fish in the pool below the bridge where we had released much fish. With a small de-barbed wooly bugger, I had good fun catching and releasing little trout, no big ones, sorry.

Recreational Fishing License

corvina

Cilus Gilberti  (Abbott, 1899)

Hi, The other day, I went to the Sernapesca office to pick up my recreational fishing license. It’s a relatively easy process, and a yearly permit does not cost much more than my NY fishing license. Licenses are valid for a year, month, or week depending on what you ask and pay for. We are not Chilean citizens, and there is no discount if are over 65.

Here is the website where you can find the Sernapesca Offices to buy your license. You cannot buy it online. There is an outdoor store in Coyhaique across the street from the UNIMARC Supermarket where one can buy a license as of 2019.

Remember to look for the English flag at the top of the web page to translate or change your browser settings to translate into English from Spanish; Google Chrome does an excellent translation.

I have tried to buy my license online but without success. Perhaps the reason why is I am not a Chilean citizen.

If you do not have a license when asked to present it, you will get a summons to the local court. It’s not worth the trouble, and besides, we should support local fisheries management. This is a way we can contribute and be supportive.

With the license, we can fish both fresh and saltwater using one rod.
