New York has so many wonderful rivers (big and small) that run through the upstate region and beyond.
We take a look at 11 of New York State’s great fishing rivers. These include the Niagara, Susquehanna, Chenango, Hudson, Genesee, and others. There might even be one or two here that you’ve never heard of. With each river, we highlight a great “river city” to go with it. Take a look, maybe your own hometown is on this list. Or maybe you’ll get new ideas for day trips or fishing vacations!
These featured cities along with the rivers we’ve listed each have something unique and special about them. Many offer rich and exciting stories behind them. Apart from the picturesque sights, these towns also offer different experiences. From museums and bridges to delicious family restaurants and small businesses, these river towns have plenty of fun to offer visitors of all ages.
And of course, when you talk about New York State’s rivers and streams, you naturally have to talk about fishing too. As you’ll see, several of the river towns mentioned in this gallery have a reputation for excellent fishing that goes far beyond New York State’s border. I mean, we even have a place called “Trout Town USA” on this list, right?
If your river or “river town” isn’t on this list, feel free to give it a shout.
