Echo Hill Outdoor School’s Andrew McCown is back with another edition of Cool Outdoor Stuff with videographer Jack Elliott. This time, Andy reflects on a recent fishing trip to the Beaverkill River in the Catskill mountains. The Beaverkill today represents a remarkable success story for ecosystem conservation — nearly depleted after World War II due to over-fishing and bad water quality, the Beaverkill has been carefully managed to grow again into one of the best fisheries in the East. Following up on the Spy’s recent analysis of the Conowingo Dam issues, Andy asks, “What can we learn from the Beaverkill?”
The video is four minutes long.
