This tributary of the Hudson River gets its start at Cheney Pond in the town of Minerva. Here, you’ll find native brook trout. Farther down the river, however, the state regularly stocks brown trout each spring. Essex County usually adds larger rainbows and brook trout.

The Boreas empties into the Hudson River just south of the North Woods Club Road bridge. Access is available at several bridge locations.
