Fish free from the Mohawk Towpath Byway the weekend of June 28 and 29, 2014. During the last weekend in June you don’t need a license to fish New York’s waters. With the plethora of access points to the Mohawk River and its tributaries the Byway corridor is an excellent place to take advantage of this opportunity.
There are several spots that provide good access for those who are physically challenged. A nationally recognized access point is from Terminal Road in the Town of Halfmoon. A paved trail leads under the Route 9 bridge for excellent fishing access in deeper waters of the Mohawk River. There’s a less formal spot adjacent to the Route 146 bridge in Rexford. Park along the south side of the Schenectady Yacht Club parking lot just off Route 146. The paved ramp that parallels the approach to the bridge ends at a guide rail right at water’s edge.
