25.00

Ward Pound Ridge Reservation is Westchester County’s largest park, consisting of more than 4,000 acres featuring stunning landscapes, miles of wooded trails, a historic museum, and most importantly … two pristine streams!  These two streams, the Cross River and the Stone Hill River run through the rustic woodlands of the park and are home to native brook trout as well as stocked brown trout, The Reservation has picnic areas, barbecues and flush toilets and is frequently visited by local Juliana’s members. Best of all, this stunning venue is only an hour north of Manhattan!.

We will meet at Kimberly Bridge on the Cross River within the Reservation at 8:30 am. (Arrivals after 9AM will have to cough up a $10 entrance fee.) The wading is easy and we’ll have coffee and a some snacks to get you started. After a few hours, we will break for a Juliana’s style barbecue lunch at one of the nearby picnic areas.  Members can take this time to stop in the Trailside Nature Museum, one of the oldest of its kind in the United States, or visit the nearby meadow for bird-watching and butterflying.  Following lunch, we will move downstream to a more wooded section of the Cross River to continue our angling.  Everyone will need a NYS fishing license.  Recommended flies include blue winged olives, and both green and brown drakes!
