Fly Fishing 6 Mile Water Works

Tuesday is the night to get out and fly fish with Rodney, a certified Casting Instructor with the Federation of Fly Fishers, over at six Mile Waterworks! Meet Rodney at the pavilion in the park at 5:30pm! Please remember to bring your fly fishing gear, fishing license, flies and any personal meds you may need.

6 mile Water Works was the first municipal water supply owned and operated by the City of Albany. Prior to 1850, a private company–the Albany Waterworks Company–tapped a number of sources to supply City residents with drinking water. At that time, the Maezlandt Kill, Middle Creek and Patroon Creek provided drinking water to the City. Many residents also relied upon private wells.

Today, Six Mile Waterworks is a recreational oasis offering fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday City life. Tucked away in a tiny corner of the City, the 57-acre park boats picnic tables, grills, expanded parking facilities and a sparkling new state-of-the-art playground facility. Rensselaer Lake is stocked several times each year with fish from the City’s Alcove Reservoir, said to be home to some of the biggest fish in the Capital District.
