A fishing dock was built just for the purpose of fishing below the dam. There are also handicapped accessible fishing docks above the falls.
The Waterford flight of docks looks interesting with so many locks in a short distance. The sign claims that it's the largest vertical lift in the shortest distance on any canal in the world. It could be fun to try kayaking through them.
And Cohoes has a shopping district! Who knew? I love Cohoes!
Here is a picture of the falls two days earlier. The water level has come down quite a bit in just two days.
