I know everyone here is tight lipped but has anyone hunted the Chemung River for duck?

When you scout be sure to record water levels and watch the predictions, significant changes can be seen overnight and change your hunting for the next day.

Are there any parts of the river where I can hunt with waders and a dog without a boat during the season or is a boat going to be needed for this water?

There are places that you can hunt with waders and a dog, scouting is key. The fall bite for smallmouth fishing is pretty good, spend a few hours wading and fishing. No better way to scout and kill time. You can PM me for more info if you want. I frequently hunt between Corning and Waverly on the river. :thumbsup:

I'll probably shoot you a PM as the season gets closer to bounce some ideas off of you. This is my first year for waterfowl so I'm kind of diving in with both feet.

I have to head down to Waverly next week for work so I'll sneak some scouting time into the word day.
