Jack - Hancock is a great central location to fish the Big D IMO It has quite a few motels to choose from. There also used to be a bed and breakfast there. And Al Caucci's place is just outside of town on the PA side of the west branch

I remember the Capra Hotel rates from last year were only around $55.00 a night for double occupancy. The Hotel is right in Hancock and there is a nice lighted table to tie flies at every night after you get off the water. I was there during the peak of the Sulpher/Green Drake hatch and there was plenty of room a the Capra, to the point that I did not have to book in advance. There is also a nice bar run by a couple ladies right up the road. A lot of guides go there every night and it is a great fly fishing atmosphere.

When I lived in the NE, I would make a trip nearly every weekend in the spring and early summer. If the D wasn't in good shape we would hit the other Catskill streams, the Beaverkill, Willow, etc.

You are right, Hancock is a great home base for the WB, EB, & MS of the D as well as the other Catskill streams. Something to ponder.

I am interested but I can not make make any firm commitment at this time. When I stayed the "whitehouse" at West Branch Angler- the room rate was $59. They have 5-6 different rooms with some guests having to share a bathroom. On the plus side there was a full size kitchen with all amenities if you did'nt want to eat out.

Jack- it's a haul. 7-8 hour ride.

I always wanted to go too the D with people that new what they where doing. Last year i went on a special ops mission to scope the area and was still befudelled on the regulation. Could i go on that side or stay on this side. where can i go and so on. I wouldn't mind spending my 30th on the shores of the Delaware. Keep me informed. When it comes to fishing or hunting i will sleep anywhere ground, car, tent, cabin, its all good.
