Near Piercefield, the upper Raquette River has a scenic 17 mile fly fishery from Piercefield downstream to Carry Falls Reservoir. Sadly, there is limited public shoreline access, though the DEC has recently purchased a few parcels. Consequently, the main access is by canoe but there are numerous very difficult rapids and waterfalls. This wild and scenic section is known for its small mouth bass, along with some rainbow trout and brook trout.

Overall, Raquette River is the 29th most popular fly fishing river of all 32 fly fishing spots in New York.
