Anglers now have boating access on a 10-mile stretch of the Black River between Castorland and Carthage that did not previously exist. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant fishing access site is located in the Town of Denmark at the confluence of the Deer and Black rivers. It features a single-lane gravel launch, with an additional area for launching canoes and kayaks. Anglers also have improved access to Public Fishing Rights (PFR) on 0.35 miles along the Deer River and approximately 0.66 miles along the Black River. Anglers can find smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike and chain pickerel in this section of the Black River. DEC Region 6 Operations constructed the site with Marks Farms Natural Resources Damages settlement funds.
