Upper Hudson River normal after dredging

Thursday, July 31, 2014
Having fished the 14 miles of the upper Hudson River between Stillwater and Schuylerville at least a dozen times this summer, I’ve learned a bit about the dredging and its effects on the fishing. Based on the numbers and sizes of fish I’ve caught and released, primarily bass, everything is normal. Since 2009, when the GE dredging began around Fort Edward, they’ve worked their way down to the stretch between Locks 4 and 5. Dredging is around the clock, and when out there you’ll see a number of barges and work boats, both moving and anchored. Give them the right-of-way and keep on fishing.

Learning from her mistakes

Monday, July 28, 2014

Because of ballet, there’s one segment of modeling that she is ill-equipped for: “I could never do a foot ad,” she said with a laugh. “I have the bloody toes to prove it.”
And yet, she never really knew from bloody until she dipped one of her powerful toes into the waters of thoroughbred racing ownership.

Have trophy, will travel

Friday, July 25, 2014
OK, I’m trophied out.
I’ve seen Union College’s national hockey championship hardware in so many places by now that its image in my mind’s eye is beginning to transmogrify from the simple, elegant wooden piece that it is into the Travelocity gnome.
I will welcome the point at which my trophy muscles are allowed to atrophy.
But that time is not yet.

Martin paid her Symetra dues

Sunday, July 20, 2014
Dreams do come true on the Symetra Tour, the former Futures Tour that is billed as the official “Road to the LPGA.” But sometimes it takes a lot longer than one would think.
