The DEC is looking for the public’s input on its Draft Fisheries Management Plan for Inland Trout Streams in New York State (Plan). The purpose of the Plan is to guide the efforts and resources of DEC toward managing New York’s trout stream fisheries according to their ecological and recreational potential.
The Plan was written to communicate what outcomes the DEC will strive to achieve while managing for a diversity of fishing experiences and providing anglers with the means to find those experiences. Plan objectives and strategies address the management of both wild and stocked trout, habitat enhancement and protection, public access, and outreach.
To comment on the plan, send an email with the subject line “Trout Stream Plan,” or send written comments to the contact listed below by June 25.
