Wappingers Creek & Lake, Wappingers Fall, NY
Mike and I paddle Wappingers Creek from the Hudson River to the dam (falls)
then we load up the kayaks and put in on Wappingers Lake and paddle
the lake up the small falls.
Saw some turtles and birds.
Special sighting was a Black-capped Night Heron

Cannonsville Reservoir, Deposit, NY
Bob & Mike join me for a delightful paddle on a NYC reservoir.
A 3 year pilot program. Must get boat steam cleaned, permit and pass (all free).
Below are links with information about the program and requirements:
- Cannonsville Boating Brochure (PDF)
- Printable recreational boat tag application (PDF) (save time: do this prior to trip)
- DEP-approved steam cleaning vendors (PDF)
- Rules for the Recreational Use of Water Supply Lands and Waters
If you go, I hope you enjoy the reservoir as much as we did.
