I recommend you steer clear of the Schroon until it learns how to behave itself. Ponds and smaller brooks / streams would be a safe more productive alternative for a while.
With 5+" of rain yesterday, the beaver dam just up the road from my house was breached. The beavers, I suspect, are dead from winter kill. No one has seen them in the pond this spring. Here's a video of the road scouring away
What's worse is the loss of a cool ecosystem we saw on a daily basis. It will be interesting to see the transition though. Maybe now with an undamed flow, some brook trout habitat might be established downstream. Keeping my fingers crossed.
