Our Top Trout Streams

The study said that from Roscoe to the East Branch Delaware, the stream flows for some 15 miles over some excellent trout habitat. In the Roscoe-to-Horton reach, habitat consists of riffles and pocket water intermingled with deeper pools. From Horton, past Peakville, all the way to the mouth, the pools are less numerous but larger in size.

SCENIC ROADWAYS OF THE CATSKILL - ROSCOE AREA  In 1920, a road along the New York side of the Delaware River was initiated to link the settlements along the river. This same road, Route 97, now defines the proposed corridor for the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway. The scenic byway boundary is a linear corridor along Route 97 in Orange, Sullivan and Delaware Counties that encompasses the intrinsic qualities found along the road and the Upper Delaware River, and within the river communities. The byway corridor extends along 71.35 miles  between and including the city of Port Jervis and the village of Hancock.

    Summer of Love and Woodstock

    Rebellion against the establishment appeared in many forms in the United States during the 1960s. Caught up in the rising frustration circling around America's increased involvement in Vietnam, the racial unrest in many urban areas, and the pressure to conform, a growing number of the younger generation rejected the American way of life. The resulting movement, termed the counterculture, embraced an alternative lifestyle characterized by long hair, brightly colored clothes, communal living, free sex, and rampant drug use.

    The Woodstock Music and Art Festival was a rock festival held at Max Yasgur's 600 acre (2.4 km˛) dairy farm in Bethel, New York from August 15–August 18, 1969. It is arguably and very widely viewed as the most famous rock festival ever held. For many, it exemplified the counterculture of the 1960s and the "hippie era". Many of the best-known musicians of the times appeared during the rainy weekend, captured in a successful 1970 movie, Woodstock. Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock", which memorialized the event, became a major hit for Crosby Stills Nash and Young.

    WOODSTOCK
    Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    by Joni Mitchel

    Em
    Well I came upon a child of God
                 A7sus                 Em7
    He was walking along the road
              A7sus                                    Em7
    And I asked him "Where are you going"

    This he told me

    "I'm going on down to Yasgurs farm
               A7sus                         Em
    Gonna join in a Rock `n' Roll band
                A7sus                Em7
    Gonna camp out on the land

    And set my soul free"

    chorus:
                A7sus
    We are stardust

    We are golden

    And we are billion year old Crabon
                 Em7                                           
    And we got to get ourselves
                       Em   G   A   G   Em
    Back to the gar           -         den


    Can I walk beside you?
    I have come to lose the smog
    And I feel to be caught in something turning
    Maybe it's the time of year or maybe it's the time of man
    I don't know who I am but life is for learning

    chorus:

    By the time we got to Woodtsock
    We were half a million strong
    And everywhere was a song and celebration
    And I dreamed I saw the bombers riding shotgun in the sky
    Turning into butterflies above the nation

    chorus:
    caught in the devils bargain
    And we got to get ourselves back to the garden

          We are indeed the people our parents warned us against! Our generation, the Boomers,  we have been through a lot. They were the best of times.  They were the worst of times. We are now approaching the summer of our  years. Part of that stage of life is reflecting on what we have done and what we will do with tommorrow.  We are growing older, but are younger then that now.

          Joni Mitchell began playing in small nightclubs and busking on the streets of Toronto and in her native Western Canada. She subsequently became associated with the burgeoning folk music scene of the mid-1960s in New York City. Mitchell achieved fame in the late 1960s and was considered a key part of the Southern California folk rock scene. Mitchell has amassed a body of work that is highly respected by both critics and fellow musicians. Joni Mitchell stands as the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century.

            HISTORY FACTS OF THE CATSKILL - ROSCOE AREA

            The gray sandstones of the area formed some 360-400 million years ago when the Catskill region was a shallow sea filling up with clay and silt washing off the high mountains to the east. The sandstones have now been uplifted high above sea level, but the layers formed in a shallow sea are still visible.

            Streams have eroded deep valleys into this high plateau, forming the Catskill Mountains. Continental and valley glaciers have also left their mark, repeatedly covering the Catskills from 10,000 to two million years ago.The history of the Catskill Mountains is a geologic story come full circle, from erosion, deposition and uplift back to erosion. The Catskill Mountains are more of a dissected plateau than a series of mountain ranges. The sediments that make up the rocks in the Catskills were deposited when the ancient Acadian Mountains in the east were rising and subsequently eroding.

            The highest point is an approximately 3,520-foot (1,073 m) summit of Bearpen Mountain along the Greene County line. The lowest point is along the Delaware River.

            Delaware County is located in the southern part of the state, separated from the state of Pennsylvania by the Delaware River. It is east of Binghamton and southwest of Albany. The county contains part of the Catskill Mountains. The county is within a region called the Southern Tier of New York State.

            When counties were established in New York State in 1683, the present area of Delaware County was divided between Albany and Ulster Counties

            Major Johannes Hardenbergh (1670 – 1745) also known as Sir Johannes Hardenbergh, was the owner of the Hardenbergh patent of land in the Catskill Mountains. In 1716, Hardenbergh bought the immense tract of land since known as the "Hardenbergh patent", which covered some 2 million acres (8000 km˛) of the Catskill Mountains in what is today Sullivan, Ulster and Delaware counties, from Nanisinos, sachem of the Esopus Indians, for the sum of 60 pounds.

            Roscoe like most of the Catskills was part of the Hardenberg Patent in the early 1700s which in turn was purchased by the last Lord of Manor of Livingston Manor, Robert Livingston. The first settlers were brothers Luther and Jehiel Stewart who bought the area around Roscoe from Livingston's son Jonatahan Livingston. Stewart Street is one of the community's main streets.

            The name is in honor of Major General John Sullivan, who was a hero in theAmerican Revolutionary War.

            In 1789 Roscoe was called Westfield Flats.It was the home of the Delaware Indians, where panthers and wolves roamed freely. A history of the surroundings of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc river basins. This region was the borderland between the Iroquois nations to the North and the Algonquin of the South. The Lenni-Lenapes, a branch of the Delaware tribes, were in the majority. Although defeated by the Iroquois, they remained active under the leadership of their chief Nanismos and continued to enjoy the protective preserve with an abundance of fish and game which included deer, elk, moose, wolves, bear, panthers, and other fur bearing animals. Wild geese, ducks, and turkey provided ready food at all times.
