Trout Stream Management Meeting set for Poestenkill

As part of a statewide series of public meetings on trout stream management, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Poestenkill main fire station, 182 Main St. (Route 355), Poestenkill, Rensselaer County.

The meeting will provide an overview of the state's approach to trout stream management and elicit feedback from trout stream anglers regarding their preferences and expectations for the management of these waters.

The meeting will feature a 30-minute presentation describing how DEC currently manages trout streams and will include key findings of a statewide study completed in 2015. The presentation will be followed by a discussion period aimed at identifying the measures of trout stream angling quality most important to this segment of New York's angling public.

More information about trout stream management can be found on DEC's website.
