Anyone fish the Hoosic and Batenkill rivers upstate outside of Albany? The batenkill once in NY gets a lot less pressure than around the manchester VT area. I've spent some time on the river since my grandparents live nearby. I haven't tried the hoosic though? Anyone ever fish that? There are lots of little creeks in the capitla region that are loaded with trout. Its a good time.

Also, if you're up for the drive, the Au Sable and other rivers in the Adirondacks are a good time.
