Another great trip report, and another batch of amazing photos. I've been thinking about Boreas Ponds for a while, now it's on my list for sure.

I caught several pike recently on Floodwood Pond. (Also not giving anything away- Floodwood is a well known pike fishery). Every time I was fishing for bass- once with a bucktail jig, the other times...

There are some drive up sites along Horseshoe Lake, just a bit north of Little Tupper and just a little off Rt. 30. If memory serves they are maybe about a half hour away from Little Tupper. I've...

It's a reasonable assumption. The fire dept made 3 failed attempts to reach the accident site in the first few hours before the DEC got there. The first- the firefighter with the chainsaw in the...

Yes, we can never know for sure if the poor woman would have survived if she had been extracted sooner.

We do know that her extraction took far longer than it needed to. Had the local fire dept...

Floodwood Mountain

I will be camping on Floodwood Pond in the next few weeks and am looking at day hike options in the area. From the map, Floodwood Mountain looks like it could be a good option. Can anyone comment...

Cedar River Flow on the east side of the Moose River Plains is a good option for trout fishing- trolling a Lake Clear Wobbler set up from your canoe might prove fruitful for brookies or brown trout....

A compelling case for always calling the DEC first. But as you said, most people are wired to call 911 and can hardly be faulted for that.

Perhaps a law or regulation that states unequivocably...

It seems to me that the local agencies, when faced with a situation like this in which they are clearly out of their element, should involve the rangers as soon as possible. And from this account it...

Putnam Pond/Lake George

Just returned from a week spent around Putnam Pond and Lake George. Although this year's annual anniversary trip was spent in more populated areas than usual, a good time was had by all.

We began...

Fintastic-

I had no trouble finding dead and down wood at remote site 7 as long as I was willing to walk a little ways. Also, you can buy bags of wood right at the campground, which I did when I...

Seems to me the boat club, where I assume you pay to keep your kayak, bears the responsibility for this. They should replace your kayak and the other stolen boats. I hope they at least returned the...

I've never had trouble driving to the Pillsbury trailhead, but I always did it in my old Chevy Blazer. Haven't tried it yet with the Subaru. I've seen Subies in the lot, though.

As for fishing,...

The Indian Lake Island sites are part of the campground and have to be reserved. From my experience, if you want an island site you need to book it pretty far in advance.

The campground operates...

Joe Indian Island in Cranberry Lake is one of my favorites. Lots of well spaced campsites, good fishing, and reasonably close to some great hikes.

Yeah, looks like I was confusing the two West Lake lean-to's. Justin is correct, #1 is the more desirable of the two. That's what happens when you give information based on memory before consulting...

Does anyone know when these closures are supposed to happen? I camped on Follensby Clear last summer and all of the sites were still open then. It was a good thing too, because a lot of them were...
