Hudson River brook trout

I'm guessing most folks don't use the words Hudson River and wild brook trout in the same sentence... BUT, I do.... guessing most folks think of the mighty Hudson as a warm water fishery of sorts...

We 're up in the Adirondacks last week with good friends--- swimming, socializing, eating, and drinking a tad... having a grand time... I even chucked hardware in the Raquette River one rainy day catching smallmouths... then on our way home my wife and I found our way to Tahawus, where I fished the upper Hudson River for brook trout....

Yes, maybe 10 years back Open Space Institute purchased some 6000 to 10,000 acres and eventually turned it over to NYSDEC, providing a gateway to Mt. Marcy, Lake Tear in the Clouds, and other places... lots of ironwork artifacts still to be found there....
