Clyde River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Formerly a large tributary of the Seneca River, its sources (Garnagua Creek and Canandaigua Outlet) were diverted in the early twentieth century to feed the Barge Canal (currently the New Erie Canal), leaving its upper section a shallow, serpentine backwater resembling a southern bayou. Stagnant, stump-ridden, and twisting and turning through the Galen Marsh State Wildlife Management Area, it presents a prehistoric setting steeped in the hair-raising sounds of its amazing array of waterfowl and wildlife. Downstream of the village of Clyde, the stream was mostly incorporated into the canal, but its original oxbows still weave in and out. Key species: Largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye, pumpkinseed, bluegill, black crappie, silver bass, brown bullhead, channel catfish, and carp"
