Hudson River brook trout

Post by Eperous » Sat Jul 27, 2019 8:45 pm

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....

Looks like a great stretch of water.

I'll never forget my first hiking trip up there and learning I'd be walk through the Hudson River at one point. Was hard to imagine what I see down here in the city starts so small.

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....
