Bear season will also be open.

I wouldn't worry too much about hunting activity while you're on or near the river, as they'll mostly be up in the woods to the east of the river if they are...

Yeah, I'll ditto the supposition that TCD is correct. My first thought was "that looks much more like downstate NY than most of the ADKs or Catskills."

Long Lake usually isn't too bad with wind, but every once in a while it can be tricky, especially if you're in a smaller canoe (solo canoes particularly). I've done this trip by solo canoe 3 times-...

If you took the ferry, there's spots on the south side of the lake where you could park and access the lake. You could also hike from Twitchell Lake to Beaver River and launch near there, which would...

Yeah, I was planning also to mention that same route- Little Tupper to the Oswegatchie. Over 8 full days, parts of it were fairly relaxed. Also a good mix of lakes and ponds combined with sections...

I encountered a couple of black flies at Lake Colden this past weekend, but otherwise it was completely bug free. However, mosquitoes are still out and about in Newcomb- they get pretty nasty at...
