    I've gone much of this whole summer without fishing, and the times i do go i never catch anything. Any one know any decent fishing areas in the state fairly close to chenango or delaware county.

    Welcome to the BOC Dustin. I dont know anything about the area you live in. The best way to get info about fishing would be through the New york state department of inviromental conservation. Just look up N.Y.D.E.C. on your puter. They have a county by county report on fishing, and what kind of fish are in your local waters. Good luck--if i can help in any way let me know.

    As a matter of fact i live very close to the chenango river, so thats god news. Plus the town i live in has the susquehanna river run right through it, do you know if there are any sort of catfish in there besides madtoms?
