i grew up lliterally on the Black River near Lowville many years ago, where I spent my youth with a floating dock and small boat. A couple of buddies and I went fishing for pike, walleyes, and bass nearly every day. I used to know all the favored hot spots for pike, all the submerged logs and expansive weed bed hide-outs back then from Lyons Falls almost all the way to Carthage. In more recent years, paddling through while canoe race training, I don't even recognize the river any more. There are none of the old weed beds at all in existance where they once grew thick. I suppose the river is cleaner now with fewer farms polluting, that may be the reason. I've not tried fishing to any degree recently, but have threatened to try again.
