  On August 3, 2010 Matt Stevens of Corning NY caught this monster muskie under the Patterson Bridge in Corning NY. The fish was 37 inches long and weighed in at 19.5 pounds This was the first muskie that Matt has ever caught. He had only made about 10 cast before the big musky made the mistake of chewing on Matts lure. Matt says he has a bad case of muskie fever now and the only known cure is to go fishing and catch a bigger one the next time!

  The Chemung River offers the following recreational activities fishing, canoeing, rafting, kayaking, swimming, and hiking. In the last few years there has been a lot of interest in the river with the addition of many new boat launches and access points. This region has finally realized what a great asset the river can be.

  The Chemung River is formed when the Tioga River and the Cohocton River merge at Painted Post just west of Corning. From there it flows to the southeast and meets up with the north branch of the Susquehanna River in Sayre PA. The Chemung River is a warm water habitat, but has many small feeder streams that are stocked or support native populations of trout. When fishing on the Chemung River some of the fish species you may encounter include Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Walleye, Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Rock Bass, White Bass, Crappie, Sunfish, Bullheads, Bowfin, White Suckers, Channel Catfish, Blue Catfish, Carp, Muskellunge, Hybrid Striped Bass, American Shad

  The state has also been stocking Muskellunge for many years now and it is possible that some of these may be over 30 pounds by now. The state of NY has also stocked American Shad fry in an attempt to restore these fish to these waters.

  At one time the Chemung River once held the claim to the states record walleye of 15-pound, 3 ounces. This awesome walleye was caught in the early 1950s and held the state record for more than 40 years. Stories of larger walleyes are told and in time it may well produce another record breaking fish.
