Ligar's Lake, Oswegatchie River Postcard

$ 0.45

Ligar’s Lake was said to be near the village of Harrisville, NY, on the Oswegatchie, a 137-mile-long river in northern New York that flows from the Adirondack Mountains north to the Saint Lawrence River at the city of Ogdensburg, site of a Jesuit mission, Fort de La Présentation, founded in 1749. Also a fur trading post, the village had 3,000 Onondaga Indians, most of whom converted to Catholicism. They became known as the “Oswegatchie.”
     The river comprises three branches: East, West and Middle, which all begin in the Five Ponds Wilderness. The Middle Branch unites with the West Branch near the village of Harrisville, in Lewis County. The river continues downstream as the West Branch, until it unites with the East Branch near the village of Talcville.
     Important fish species include smallmouth bass, northern pike, musky, channel catfish, walleyes, red-finned mullet, and common carp. Text: Ligar’s Lake, Oswegatchie River in the Adirondacks, N.Y. ©2014 R.P. Nadeau. All rights reserved.
