Not sure if your trip already occurred, but I would second the recommendation to call up wiley's flies and set up a trip. Highly recommended and they fish a variety of waters.

If you are focusing primarily on small streams, might as well go with the 2 weight. I use a 3 but that is because I occasionally fish larger streams with it. But the fish are generally so small...

Whoever said that you cast the line not the "lure" is on the money. Also need to be throwing some combination of fur and feathers. Casting nightcrawlers with a fly rod/line is not fly fishing.

If you want to catch bass St. Regis is not the spot. There are other lakes/ponds in the canoe area with bass, but St. Regis does not make for a good base if you want to fish them.

Not sure when you are going, but cranberry lake is a nice campground with nice sites that are generally good sized and not right on top of each other. As far as campgrounds go, it is a good one imo.

If I was just going to fish the streams, I would say 9 foot 4 weight. But since you are looking for 1 rod for all situations, I would go with a 9 foot 5 as that will be better in the ponds. The...

Why do rainbows do so poorly in the adirondacks

Was thinking about this the other day. Was curious as to why rainbows seem to do so poorly in the adirondacks. While there are certainly plenty of them stocked, it seems as though very few hold...

Lee Wulff lived on the Battenkill. While certainly not in the park, some people do generously include that area when referring to the Adironondacks.

Any reason why you want a rowboat instead of a canoe? Canoe is much easier for a number of reasons.

Umm...the DEC provides argualby the best system of public campgrounds in the country. You may not like the crowds or whatever, but it is a fact.

I would highly recommend against starting out from a canoe. Learn how to cast on dry land first. Casting froma canoe is tricky and will be a nightmare for someone who doesn't know how to cast.

Love the proposal for the saranac.

I think I like the proposal for the salmon but wonder if the benefits of having a catch and release area will be offset by increased pressure in that section.

Why did the guy say no spey rods? Just too many people? Too me that river is perfect for a switch rod.

I have never spent much time fishing for the landlocks, mainly because the times I have...

Your friend doesn't know what he is talking about. I can't speak to those two particular lakes, but in general fall offers some of the best fishing of the year.
