NY conservation officials slate series of public meetings on Lake Ontario fisheries


ALBANY, New York — New York conservation officials plan to hold a series of public evening meetings about Lake Ontario fisheries next month in Monroe, Oswego and Niagara counties.

The Department of Environmental Conservation says the Great Lake, its bays and tributaries support thriving fish populations, including trout, salmon, bass, walleye, yellow perch and panfish.

State and federal wildlife officials plan to present information with updates on trout and salmon fisheries, forage fish and stocking programs.

Sessions are scheduled next Monday at the Rochester Institute of Technology, March 10 at the DEC Training Academy in Pulaski and March 16 at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Building, in Lockport, Niagara County.

Past annual fisheries reports are online.
