Floating down the river

August 22, 1993|By New York Times News Service

The upper reaches of the Hudson River ring with the screams of day-tripping rafters during spring runoff, but now there's a more subtle way to float this remote Adirondack waterway. Michael Wilson, who is probably the first guide to run wooden boats through the Hudson River gorge in six decades, is offering two overnight trips in his dories this fall.

The dories seat two passengers and are designed to be easily maneuvered in fast-moving water. The first trip is Sept. 17-19. It will focus on fly fishing.

The second trip, Oct. 1-3, will be led by a geologist who will describe the passing rocks of the ancient Adirondacks.

The cost of each trip is $650 per person, including meals. Call (315) 354-5311.
