NY DEC Trout Steam Management
As a representative of an organization with an interest in trout stream management activities of the Department of Environmental Conservation, I invite you to attend one of the upcoming public meetings that we have scheduled on the subject. I encourage you to get the word out to your membership and anyone else you know who has an interest in inland trout stream management.
In Region 7 we have scheduled two public meetings in October in order to engage the public in an examination of how our current catch rate based objective for stream trout management fits the purpose of satisfying the desires of today’s recreational trout stream anglers. The first meeting in the Region is set for Wednesday, October 18th at the Paul V Moore High School Auditorium, 44 School Drive, Central Square, NY 13036 and the second will be held on Thursday, October 26th at the Whitney Point High School Auditorium, 10 Keibel Road, Whitney Point, NY 13862. Both meetings will be held from 6:30PM to 9:00PM.
For more information regarding our inland trout stream management program and the upcoming meetings visit our website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/111015.html\.
I hope you will take the time to share this with your fellow anglers who may have an interest in this issue and I’m looking forward to good turnouts and productive meetings.
