    New to NY looking for the basic, non-secret fish spot advice

    So I'm guessing this is mostly downstate folks, but I just moved to Albany County from Seattle. I'm wondering a few things, good places to fish in my neck of the woods, basic fly patterns I should be carrying, and what weight rods I should be using.

    Washington State mountain trout tend to be itty bitty so my current selection on rods is 3 wt, 5wt, and an 8wt I need a new tip for.

    Any thoughts, tips, suggestions are welcome.

    About an hour south of you is the Esopus Creek and its tribs. Stocked browns and good wild rainbows.
    3-5 wt rod, 3 wt nymphing rod if you have one.
    Usual nymphs, Hares Ear, PT, Stone, Caddis.

    Funny that this video should pop up this morning.

    He even tells you what pattern he caught each fish on.

    Google Esopus PFR, Schoharie PFR, West Kill PFR, etc, to get a map of the "Public Fishing Rights" access areas for water you might want to check out. The Schoharie is actually a Mohawk River trib that starts in the Catskills so I'm sure you can find some nice spots up there, which is half the fun. Enjoy.

    Although a shell of its former self, the Battenkill River will be getting some much needed love soon. I believe TU has funding to start a major project for that watershed to begin restoration efforts. Something to keep an eye on for the future as it's not too far from Albany county.
