The Upper Delaware River

The 73.4-mile stretch of the Delaware River between Hancock, NY and Mill Rift, PA is part of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, a component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Named to the system in 1978, the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River is a working partnership of local, state, and federal governments, as well as individuals, organizations and businesses, dedicated to conserving this precious resource while providing public use and preserving private property rights. This cooperative legislation was the first of its kind in the country.

The Upper Delaware is managed by the National Park Service, with input from the Upper Delaware Council, which was established in 1988.

The river boosts a healthy recreational economy and is known as the best fresh water fishery, this side of the Mississippi.
