Note of the Day:
At the turn of the century, the lower Beaver Kill in New York State was too warm and polluted for trout, due to extensive clearcutting, paper mills, an tanneries along its banks. The banks are now forested, the tanneries and mills are long gone, but this river is still a sensitive ecosystem, threatened by roads and housing developments. —Tom Rosenbauer
