Welcome to the UBRC website and Happy New Year to you all.

Although we are heading into winter, the days are getting longer!  The Upper Black is flowing through snow-covered ground now, where elk and deer seasons are wrapping to a close and ice will soon be seen along the river’s edge.  It’s always a beautiful season to visit “the resource,” if for no other reason than to take a look at the great in-stream habitat work that’s taken place these last few years.  A year-end report on the work on our most recent permit reach, up and downstream of the Tin Shanty Bridge in eastern Otsego County will be available for viewing soon.
