The 17th longest river in the U.S., it begins at the confluence of its eastern and western branches at Hancock, NY, and flows 330.7 miles to Delaware Bay. The waterway acts as a border for the states of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey and travels through the Catskill, Pocono and Kittatinny mountain ranges. Fishing is river is popular as muskie, pike, bass, perch, walleye, blue gill, catfish and trout inhabit the crystal clear waters, and American shad return from the Atlantic to spawn in the river usually in mid-April.
