TU Conservation News – Catskills

By  | 

Just a few hours away – the Catskills are a favorite destination for many of CVTU’s membership!

Check out the great work TU has done on the streams in this region…

The Catskills are known as the birthplace of American fly fishing. Replete with rivers and streams, the area is a destination for many thousands of fisherman and women each year. TU is actively improving a number of trout streams in the Catskills and throughout the southern tier of New York to increase fishing opportunities and to improve habitat for brook trout and other coldwater species in these waters.

TU is working on the Cohocton River in Steuben County, Newtown Creek in Chemung County, Owego Creek in Tioga County and Spring Brook in Orange Count. In addition, TU is working on improving stream conditions on Sands Creek, an important spawning tributary of the West Branch Delaware River in Delaware County. Additional Delaware County projects are also being developed on Russell Brook and Horton Brook, tributaries of the Beaver Kill.
