In addition to fishing, you can also beat the summer heat by boating. Boating on New York’s waterbodies can take the form of canoes, kayaks, personal watercraft, sailboats, and motorboats. Many lakes, ponds, and streams in Forest Preserves are restricted to non-motorized boating. There are boat launch sites in nearly every county in New York State.
