New Yorkers Bathing in Neversink

October 3, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

“The headwaters of the Neversink are cached upstream in a 35-billion-gallon reservoir and then channeled through the world’s longest continuous underground tunnel to become the purest source of water for the city’s 8 million residents. Even so, the waters below the reservoir retain a reputation as one of the finest wild trout fisheries in the world. There, anglers in the 1840s first developed the techniques that set fly-fishing in the New World apart from the more placid practices of Europe.” Yet another good article on the Cuddebackville Dam project that also mentions that there are 77,000 dams similar to this one.
