The East Branch Delaware River, approximately 75 miles (120 km) long in the U.S. state of New York, is one of two branches, along with the West Branch, that join to form the Delaware River. It flows through a mountainous area on the southwestern edge of the Catskill Mountains.

It rises in eastern Delaware County near the hamlet of Grand Gorge and flows initially SSW, through Roxbury, then WSW through Margaretville, forming part of the northern boundary of Catskill Park. East of Downsville it is impounded to form the 15 miles (24 km) Pepacton Reservoir. It receives the Beaverkill River from the southeast at East Branch. It joins the West Branch at Hancock, on the border with Pennsylvania, to form the Delaware.

The river is a popular destination for fly fishing for brown trout.
