Fishkill Creek enters the Hudson just north of Bannermans Island and is a nice place to get out of the winds and explore. The mouth of it isn't very obvious and you have to paddle underneath the railroad tracks, a low bridge or underpass, which would keep out any large boats.
Wind is always a consideration on the Hudson and the couple of times I went it seemed that the wind increased as the evening came. There are places all along the shores where one can stop, where there are no houses. Fishkill creek is blocked by a damn about a mile into it.
North of Interstate 84 at Chelsea is an excellent place to put into the Hudson but it is a bit far to get to Bannermans Island or Fishkill creek but one could head north and get to Wappingers Falls creek which I haven't yet done.
