The Initial Construct

Welcome. I intend to use this blog as a means to provide you with updated river conditions, give you my perspective as to how well the fishery is being managed, answer questions and toss in some Adirondack curmudgeon thoughts along the way.

I live near the lower river and fish it several times weekly (even in the winter). I estimate I spend 150 hours annually fly fishing the stretch from the Starbuckville Dam to the confluence with the Hudson River. I am a guide and do much of my business on the river but I will make every effort to avoid using this forum as an advertisement. If that is what you are looking for, please check out the link to the right to get to my business website. I do venture off to other other fisheries often and will sprinkle in some stuff on those as well from time to time.

If you are here just to read and get intel for your trip, good. If you are here to pick my brain, better. If you are here to take me to task and discuss the fishery, great! I would like to think this blog will help draw quality conservation minded anglers to the river to fish and enjoy. If I see anglers abusing the resource I will also be sure to "poo-poo" them as well.

So here we go. Look for updated river conditions in the right side bar this afternoon and a creel report Sunday evening.



  1. Looking good Chris! I like the river report stuff.

    Hoping to get up to fish the schroon before its too cold to do so. Thinking the upper not the lower. Hope everything is going well.


  2. Chris,

    I like it! Look forward to following your posts.
