Announcing The Hudson River Fishermen’s Association Hudson River Access Survey
It is clear to all fishermen that you can’t catch fish if you can’t get to the water.

Now there is something you can do about it.

BEN SORKIN RISING STAR
Ever since Benjamin Sorkin ’17 was a kid, the marina has been his laboratory. For as long as he can remember, his family spent their summer vacations at a remote cabin on Lake George in upstate New York. After earning his boating license at age 10, Ben began collecting old engines from the 1960s and restoring them to vintage condition. His prize project was a 1961 Glasspar G3 ski boat that he rescued from a barn where it sat unused for thirty years.

and the importance of this location as a river crossing point throughout history. You can see the remnants of several crossings, but not so visible are the fordings made by travelers hundreds, even thousands, of years ago.

Winters are busy for boaters because they are planning their trips and activities for the upcoming summer, so let’s begin that planning right now.
This past summer’s beautiful weather did not bring an increase to travel and traffic on the Hudson River/Champlain Canal. Boaters reported almost daily that “we were about the only ones up and down the river”. Fuel prices were reasonable, so what was the problem?
The situation reminded me of an article that BOTH’s own Editor John Vargo had written a couple of years ago about the underutilization of the Hudson River and NYS Canal System. He and I are in agreement and have had subsequent conversations since then and have wondered - are we the only people who realize what a magnificent, clean and accessible Hudson River and NYS Canal System we have?? Are we the only people who can see the myriad of opportunities for travel, exploration, fun and truly soulful experiences are found on the Hudson River and NYS Canal System??
Obviously we are not, but this magazine is currently the only publication devoted to the promotion of the river and canal system.
