New York's Esopus Creek

June 1, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

“The Esopus rises in the remote high country of the Catskill Mountains, and flows southeastward through Ulster County. Most of the fishing takes place on the 12 miles or so from Allaben, just above Phoenicia, to Boiceville. At Allaben, the Esopus gets a shot of cold water courtesy of the New York City water supply system, which pipes water from Schoharie reservoir to the Esopus, then lets it flow down the creek to Ashokan Reservoir.” Morgan Lyle profiles Esopus Creek in the Schenectady, New York Daily Gazette.
