As the seasons once again blend into the colder months, the radiance of the fall foliage lines the Black River Valley to create a most breathtaking view. The scenery from atop Tug Hill can create a memory to last a lifetime. A peak season drive-it-yourself tour sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce takes you to different areas in the county each year, with entertaining and interesting stops and points of interest along the way.
* Fall Foliage Drive-it-Yourself Tour booklets are available at the Chamber office in mid-September.
The hunter will find acres and acres of undisturbed fields and woodlands where he can stalk deer, turkey, small game, birds, and an occasional black bear. The local DEC office provides visitors with complete information on where and when to go.
* A hunting brochure is available at the Chamber office.
With the abundant number of fish stocked in the waters of Lewis County, the only tough decision an avid fisherman needs to make is deciding where to cast off. The lakes, rivers, and streams in the region provide some of the best fishing opportunities in the North Country for trout, bass, pike, perch, bullhead, and many other varieties. From novice to expert, young or old, everyone can find that special spot where the fish are biting. Important information about watersheds is available at The Lewis County Soil & Water Conservation District.
