Deposit, located on the West Branch of the Delaware River and home to the best trout fishing in the world, was given its name because logs were “deposited” in the river to be floated downstream to market. Home to great fishing; home to our bald eagles; foothills of the Catskills, Deposit is a beautiful place with pristine waters, many lakes and great recreational opportunities.
