On Friday, March 6, five intrepid swimmers swam 25 miles in the Arkville-based Catskill Recreation Center's pool in just five hours. Now they're hoping to raise $100 for every mile they swam, for a total of $2,500, by March 31.

The funds will benefit the Catskill Recreation Center's Family Fun Night program, a monthy event where community members will get to use the center's pool at a reduced rate.

Beth Waterman was onhand at the pool on Friday to watch the swimmers set out:

It was pretty inspiring watching them start their 5-hour swim this morning to the beats of 'Highway to Hell'. They hope to raise $2500 by March 31. Patty, Jo and Jason swam 5 miles each. Taylor swam 8 miles. Peter Manning swam 2 miles for a total of 25.

Volunteers clean the Bush Kill in Fleischmanns

 
From cleanup organizer John Hoeko:
The project was a success.  About a dozen volunteers turned out.  The Project was co-sponsored by Fleischmanns 1st and the Ahokan-Pepacton Chapter of Trout Unlimited, a national org. dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of cold water fisheries in North America.
 
We filled a dumpster with debris from Irene and thoughtless litterers and our Bushkill is once again a jewel.  The CWC, thanks to Diane Galusha, provided bags, gloves, and gifts (refrigerator clips and rain gauges).  At the end of the day participants enjoyed free food, ice cream, and refreshments donated by La Cabana Restaurant, the Fleischmanns-Pine Hill Rotary, and the Fleischmanns Supemarket.  Mountain Valley Landscaping donated a dumpster for debris and trash disposal.  The Village of Fleischmanns allowed us to use their truck to transfer filled bags to the dumpster.

John Faso: Experienced politician faces voters who are fed up with "insiders"

Above: John Faso. Image via the Faso campaign.

In the increasingly negative race to replace retiring Republican Congressman Chris Gibson in New York's 19th Congressional District, former State Assembly Minority Leader John Faso has all the hallmarks of a traditional general election contender. But that might not help him, because 2016 is no traditional election year.

Nationally, maverick candidate Donald Trump has ousted more traditional Republican candidates from the race for president. In the race for the 19th Congressional District, which represents the Catskills and Hudson Valley, Faso’s opponents hope to do the same to him.

Faso, a Republican, began his campaign for Congress with high name recognition and a time-tested fundraising apparatus. He spent 16 years in the New York State Assembly from 1987 to 2002 and made an unsuccessful GOP gubernatorial bid in 2006 against Democrat Elliot Spitzer.

Now, Faso's status as an experienced politician and elected official has become both a blessing and a curse.  Read more

It joins the Woodstock Writers Festival, held earlier this month, as part of the growing Catskills literary scene.  Read more

For New York state voters who are registered with a political party, today--April 19, 2016--is the day to vote in New York state's presidential primary election.

It's one of the most exciting primary races in years, with Donald Trump expecting a landslide of Republican votes in his race against Ted Cruz and John Kasich while Hilary Clinton dukes it out with Bernie Sanders for the state's Democratic voters. 

The national and international press is watching New York voters--including some in the Catskills--as they go to the polls today.  Read more

Delaware County will tax commercial solar farms

With the possibility of commercial solar electricity generation coming to Delaware County, the Delaware County Board of Supervisors has taken steps to make sure that solar developers pay property taxes.

The board, at its meeting on Wednesday, April 13, adopted a resolution to enter into “host community benefit” agreements for commercial solar installations. The resolution circumvents state rules, which provide property tax exemptions for such installations for 15 years.

Michael Sabansky, the county's director of real property tax services, said that 6,500 letters have been sent to Delaware County landowners soliciting leases for solar installations.

“I'm sure we're going to get a few in the county,” he said. “We do have lots of land and lots of power lines.”  Read more

Catskill Park passed over in New York budget, again

Despite months of fierce lobbying in Albany, advocates for the Catskills region of New York did not convince lawmakers to earmark a package of funds for the Catskill Park in the 2016-2017 New York state budget, which was hammered into agreement in the wee hours of Friday, April 1.

Advocates for the Catskills spent the first months of 2016 lobbying hard for the state to create $4 million line item for the Catskill Park in the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF), a request they have repeated for years. 

On Feb. 9, during a Catskill Park Awareness Day lobbying event, about 60 people representing the Catskills went door-to-door among legislative offices in Albany to urge lawmakers to commit dedicated funding to the region.   Read more

Trout season opens across the Catskills

Above: "Peter with a Brown Trout,” by Joan Challacombe, one of the runners-up in the 2015 Catskills Outdoor Guide Photo Contest. (The 2016 photo contest ends tonight, so enter now!) 

It's the first day of fishing season in the Catskills, and the oddly warm weather should be especially inviting to anglers across the region today.

The annual first cast at Junction Pool on the Beaverkill happened this morning in the Sullivan County town of Roscoe--aka "Trout Town USA"--at 7:30 a.m., and the celebrations continue all weekend with dinners and fly-tying celebrations, according to the Roscoe NY website.

Trout Unlimited - The Way of a Trout from Bill Strockbine on Vimeo.

Above: A vintage 1969 video made by Trout Unlimited about the life cycle of the trout. Thanks to the Ashokan-Pepacton Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited for sharing. 

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation 2016 Coldwater Fishing Forecast reports that fishing in the East and West Branches of the Delaware River in the western Catskills should improve this year because of improvements to the stream habitats for fish: 

Two new in-stream habitat improvement structures were installed in the East Branch tailwaters near Shinhopple and the Tomannex State Forest. The rock and wood structures are intended to provide cover where trout habitat has historically been marginal. Additionally, a large scale restoration project was completed on Sands Creek. A number of habitat structures and floodplain reconnection work was conducted along a one mile stretch of Sands Creek. Sands Creek is an important spawning tributary to the West Branch Delaware River.

The DEC also reports that the "the tailwaters of the West Branch continue to be one of the most productive fisheries for trophy trout in the northeast," but adds that some of those streams between the villages of East Branch and Hancock in Delaware County don't open for fishing until April 16 this year. 

To get you in the mood for fishing, the Ashokan-Pepacton Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited is sharing several trout fishing videos in their newsletter, including a vintage 1969 video made by Trout Unlimited about the life cycle of the trout (see above).

For a more modern take on the atmospherics of trout fishing, watch a short film about fishing on the Esopus Creek in Ulster County near Phoenicia, below. Look closely and you'll see some familiar Route 28 sites like the Phoenicia Diner.

Delaware Co. appoints tourism advisory board to oversee bed tax proceeds

The members of the Delaware County Tourism Advisory Board, a group that will decide how money from the county's new bed tax will be spent, were appointed at the Wednesday, March 23 meeting of the Delaware County Board of Supervisors.

As outlined in the new law authorizing the two percent tax on overnight stays, the advisory board is comprised of the county's economic development director, two members of the board of supervisors and four representatives of the tourism industry. The law also provides that at least two of the industry representatives must be from lodging businesses.

As is typical of advisory committee appointments, board Chairman James Eisel made the appointments without a vote of the board. There was no discussion of the issue.

Economic Development Director Glenn Nealis was appointed to a three-year term, as was Teresa Allen, the co-chair of the Upper Delaware Business Coalition.  Read more

The Irish love affair with the rocky, rolling green of the Catskills spans generations. In the Greene County hamlet of East Durham, especially, immigrants with roots in Ireland have made the region a second home.

So it’s only natural that our communities celebrate the season of St. Patrick in fine style. Here’s our five-county guide to celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day (Thursday, March 17) that are happening this weekend.

Want an introduction to the long history of the Irish in the Catskills? A new documentary that premiered last week, "The Irish Catskills: Dancing at the Crossroads," tells the story of the inns, hotels and bungalows that have catered to Irish Americans throughout history--you can buy the DVD or watch it at Narrowbackfilms.com.
