DEC Invites Input from Wiscoy Creek Anglers

Your Observations Can Help Shape Future Fisheries Management Actions

DEC Region 9 Fisheries Office is holding an angler diary program for Wiscoy Creek in Allegany and Wyoming Counties through October 31, 2015, DEC announced today. The diarist program aims to record dates, catch records and observations from anglers who fish on Wiscoy Creek. DEC will use the input from the Angler Diary Program in conjunction with our late summer electrofishing survey to evaluate Wiscoy Creek fishery's overall quality.

"Angler participation in this program is greatly appreciated and will help us to evaluate Wiscoy Creek's fishery quality," said Regional Director Abby Snyder. "This is a great opportunity for anglers to contribute observations and help shape future fishery management actions."

If you fish Wiscoy Creek (even once) and would like to contribute your observations in a DEC fishing diary, please contact the Region 9 Fisheries Office at (716) 372-0645 or by e-mail at fwfish9@dec.ny.gov.
