HooRWA is a citizens’ group that looks after the river. We are dedicated to the habitat restoration, conservation and enjoyment of the Hoosic River and its watershed, through education, research and advocacy. We envision a watershed that is ecologically sound and adds to the quality of life of its residents.
Need to get outdoors? HooRWA offers its first outdoor event of the season with a fly fishing demonstration on Sunday, June 7 from 2-4 p.m. Meet at the pond just beyond the Williamstown Transfer Station. The road to the transfer station departs from Route 7 north of the town center. A sign reads “River Access.”
Experienced area fishermen will demonstrate casting and answer questions. No license is required to fish in Massachusetts that day, so bring your rod. After the demonstration we will adjourn to the adjacent Hoosic River so you can wet your line and try your luck.
Due to COVID 19 restrictions, there will be no individual instruction. Participants must wear a face mask, practice social distancing and there is no sharing of equipment.
We ask you to respond to this invitation by June 3 to email@example.com or call 413-458-2742 to leave a message. Numbers will be limited and based
on a first-come, first-served basis.
HooRWA has published “Dispatches from the Beyond Place: Tales of the Hoosic River,” A copy can be found here on our website under the About Us tab and then under History.
