FISH AND GAME Whether you’re looking for trophy-class fish or you just want to experience the tranquility of a secluded trout stream, Dutchess County has it all. The Hudson River is quickly becoming the destination point for anglers from around the globe. Our many stocked streams and lakes have miles of public access available, and hunters and water fowlers can challenge themselves at one of our many multiple use areas. For sporting clays, trap and skeet shooters, Dutchess County is a top Northeast destination, with six shooting clubs and preserves open to the public. There are numerous spots for catching trout, bass, pickerel and perch, as well as places for dip-netting smelt, alewives and blueback herring. The beautiful Hudson itself is an ideal setting for numerous species, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, striped bass, brown bullhead, carp, white catfish and American shad. Dutchess County is one of the top two counties in the Southern Region of New York State for deer hunting, with a special archery season for deer spanning a total of about six weeks. In designated hunting areas you can also find pheasant, grouse, woodcock, squirrel, cotton-tail rabbit, raccoon and waterfowl. Be sure to contact the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in New Paltz for specific fishing and hunting regulations and other relevant information before your planned visit. No license is required for fishing for migratory fish in the Hudson River; apply online for recreational marine fishing registry.

VISIT DUTCHESS COUNTY'S

FARMS & RESTAURANTS HUNGRY FOR FARM-FRESH EXPERIENCES? Dutchess County, in the heart of the Hudson River Valley, offers you plenty of opportunities to feed your body, as well as nurture your mind and soul. The small, individual- and family-owned farms, vineyards and distilleries located throughout the heart of the Hudson Valley are a sight to behold. Breathe the fresh country air as you take in the lush farm-scapes, rolling hills and horse farms, scenic river valley views and wide open space. Interested in getting your hands a little dirty? Visit a Dutchess County farm and learn how to make handcrafted cheese, how moonshine is made, how hops are grown and turned into beer, tap a tree for maple syrup, taste farm-fresh milk, visit the sheep that produce the finest wool, explore a corn maze, or pick seasonal fruits, berries, vegetables, Christmas trees and more. If tasting is believing, then the opportunities are endless. Start the day with a hearty, homemade breakfast served as part of your overnight stay at a charming bed & breakfast. Sample the best of nature’s bounty at one of our many farm stands or farmers markets. Take part in a wine tasting and tour. And don’t forget to enjoy mouth-watering culinary creations at our restaurants that incorporate fresh, local ingredients into their dishes. One reason our restaurants are so exceptional can be traced to the extraordinary variety of produce yielded by the area’s rich soil. More and more chefs are developing distinct regional menus featuring locally grown and sourced products. Many restaurants are fortunate to have Culinary Institute of America graduates as chefs, perfecting their culinary craft. We’re fortunate to have The Culinary Institute of America’s flagship campus located here in Hyde Park. You can also shop ‘till you drop in Dutchess. For a taste of “culture” with your agriculture, visit our specialty shops which offer an array of artisanal foods and more that’s inspired by our breath-taking farms and fields. In addition to preserving the local landscape and providing great-tasting food and beverages, our farms play an important role in supporting the local economy. Once known as the “bread basket of New York,” our region has a rich, agriculture-based heritage that continues today. Dutchess County has more than 1,700 farms encompassing about 30 percent of the county’s total acreage, comprising over 170,000 acres. Together these farms, representing a variety of agricultural sectors, generate millions of dollars in annual sales and provide a direct economic benefit to area residents.
