The Black River is a blackwater river that empties into the eastern end of Lake Ontario on the shore of Jefferson County, New York in the United States of America. The origin of the name is not clear, but it may stem from the tannic acid that darkens the water in places. The river's source is in various locations, including Little Black Creek and North Lake, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in northern New York. The river ends at Lake Ontario west of the City of Watertown. For the last few miles it forms the boundary between the Towns of Brownville and Hounsfield. The river is an excellent location for fishing. Abundant trout, salmon, bass, and pike are present in the stream. Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular on some stretches of the river, notably the Black River Canyon, which begins in Watertown and ends in Brownville. The Black River Canyon is one of few whitewater streams which have reliable flows throughout the summer. The "Canyon" itself is not present until you reach Brownville and ends in the Dexter Reservoir.

I went about 2pm and me and my buddy went home with 7 small mouth bass at 4 pm. we could bairly keep the bait in the water. Allot of them were under size, but the ones we kept were 1 to 2 pounds. So it was a good day for a few hours.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
