Fishing on Adirondack loop

Are there many chances to go fly fishing on the Adirondack loop. Does it cross many creeks and rivers.

Absolutely! There is lots of great trout fishing in the Adirondacks. When I lived there almost every stream held some trout. It's 25 years ago, but hopefully it hasn't changed that much. Premier would be the Ausable River in Keene Valley and Keene (Map 6). Check at the Mountaineer (http://www.mountaineer.com) in Keene Valley for more info, and the river runs right behind the shop! Also, one of my favorites was always the Raquette River near Long Lake (Map 9).

Good luck, ride safe, and post your stories back up here!

This just in from the NYS DEC:

For the seventh time in eight years, the record for catching the largest brook trout in New York state was recently broken, state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens announced today. William Altman caught a 5 lb. 14 oz. brook trout from the West Canada Wilderness Area in Hamilton County on May 5.

You will go right by that area!

Ride safe,
Hans

You do understand you will need a non-resident fishing license if you are not a New York resident.

Oh. Yeah.  I have NR licenses for a few states.  Living in South Jersey, it's faster to go after Trout in Penna or Del than travel to North Jersey.  I would of course add NY to my list.
