Woody,

daga you can get at the Map Store in Ridgefield Park. They also have a booth at the Rockland show (right down from Daiwa). As for Zoar and the Mohawk, I have maps that I can copy for you bro. I'll bring them to the December meeting. I don;t think there is any "official" hot spots map of Zoar and the Mohawk maps are DEC maps.

Oh, and I'll be sure to give you the "un-marked" copies..:D

Have a good holiday!

The New York State Erie Canal Authority, or something like that, has a book that contains the maps off all the lakes/rivers that make up the Erie Canal system, fairly good maps, contours, launch ramps, locks and such. The Mohawk is part of this book, costs about $35. If you have trouble finding it on the web let me know and Ill dig out my book which should have a phone number.

Maps

Yo Woody!

I am not aware of any Angler's Aid type map for Zoar. I do have a basic map lake and will provide copies for all Bergen members. A fishing map for the Mohawk at Crescent does not exist. You need to buy the whole Erie Barge Canal book. It provides a section by section overview. Basically, it is geared for cruising the canal system. The channels are well defined, but shoreline detail is limited. I have a copy to show you. You can then decide if you want to buy one. I have a great waterproof map for Sacandaga. It is put out by JIMAPCO. You can check out their website.

Happy Holidays, Nick A.

That 'Daga map mentioned by Nick A, from JIMAPCO, is decent. I've heard of the Mohawk system map, but can't seem to find where to get one. Anybody got an address, website or phone #? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Woody,

The map book I was referring to is called the New York State Canal System... it is a series of NOAA charts. If I remember correctly I got the map by calling the New York State Thruway Authority. They have a subdivision called the Erie Barge Canal Authority or the NY State Canal System or something like that. The map doesnt have a phone number in it sorry. If you call the NY State Thruway Authority they should be able to put you in touch with the proper person. The maps show channel markers, launch ramps, marinas, locks, contour lines and such. Is this for the NY FED tournament on the Mohawk this year? Good luck

Don't know about Zoar, but if you want to get to know the Mohawk River, they have the lock open all winter, and if you spend a day driving around, and walking the bank, you'll see rockpiles that are submerged at full pool. This is what the better Albanyarea anglers have used for years to dominate tournaments on this water.Just put the effort in, and you'll do fine.

p.s. baits, depending upon water clarity, can include a tube jig - dragged, a spinnerbait - slow rolled, a topwater, if water is clear (zebra mussels have changed this fishery), and a deep diving crankbait cast shallow on heavy line.
