Input Sought for Possible N.Y. Fishing Regulation Changes
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is taking suggestions from anglers about some proposed changes to freshwater fishing rules, eliminating some that just didn’t work and possibly expanding seasons and limits on other regulations.
The D.E.C. is considering increasing the number of streams where year-round fishing for trout may be available and adding other streams for catch-and-release. Daily creel limits and minimum size limits could be adjusted to help spread larger trout to anglers.
Aside from the trout regulations, the D.E.C. is looking for input on increasing size limits for takes of Muskellunge and getting rid of some daily creel and minimum size limits for Walleye.
The possible changes can be seen and comment made at the D.E.C. website www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/91959.html.
