The public is invited to join DEC staff from the Region 8 Fisheries office to sample the rainbow trout run at Naples Creek, Ontario County, on March 23, beginning at 9 A.M. Sampling will include gathering data on the fish's length, weight, gender, and spawning condition in order to assess Finger Lakes fisheries management practices and to provide up-to-date information for the trout opening day fishing forecast. Results will be available to the public at the DEC Region 8 Fisheries office prior to the April 1 opening of the Finger Lakes tributary season.

Reminder: Anglers who want to fish for trout before April 1 are reminded that although catch-and-release trout fishing is open for inland streams, Finger Lakes tributaries remain closed to fishing until April 1. The main bodies of the Finger Lakes are open to fishing year-round.

Directions to Route 245 Bridge/Naples Creek: Sampling will start at the Route 245 bridge, just north of the village of Naples. Route 245 joins Route 21 just north of the village. The Route 245 bridge is approximately 0.2 to 0.3 miles from the junction with Route 21.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas. We welcome people with disabilities to all of our programs. Please call the contact number ahead of time to let us know your specific needs and we will be happy to learn how we can best serve you.
