Lots of great info, thanks again.
One more question, how are the lakes, creeks, and rivers for fishing in upstate NY? I heard a few of them have been affected by acid rain.
Absolutely great for canoeing. Acid rain was certainly big in my days up there, especially in the smaller lakes, which might register a pH of 2.5 and were marvelously "clean." The larger lakes were little-affected; chub were more of a problem for stable trout populations in the larger lakes. I'd be curious to know what has happened since.
