DEC: Genesee River Angler Diarists Wanted

Observations Will Help Shape Future Fisheries Management Actions

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) welcomes angler observations as DEC begins its angler diary program on the Genesee River in Allegany and Wyoming counties. The diarist program aims to record dates for trout and bass fishing trips on the Genesee River from the Pennsylvania line downstream through Letchworth State Park from March 1st through October 31, 2017.

"Angler participation in this program is greatly appreciated and will help us to evaluate the Genesee River's fishery quality," said Regional Fisheries Manager Mike Clancy. "This is a great opportunity for anglers to contribute observations and help shape future fishery management actions."

Those who fish the Genesee River (even once) and are able to contribute observations by keeping a fishing diary for DEC can contact the Region 9 Fisheries Office at (716) 379-6372 or by e-mail at fwfish9@dec.ny.gov.
