DEC Announces Public Meetings on New Approach to Inland Trout Stream Management

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is developing a new plan for inland trout stream management based on updated scientific information and the desires expressed by trout anglers during 16 public meetings held across the state in 2017.

Prior to completing the draft plan, DEC fisheries managers would like to meet with trout stream anglers to explain the proposed approach, answer questions, and solicit feedback. Ten public meetings around the state are scheduled between Oct. 1 and Nov. 12 to facilitate these discussions. The schedule of dates and locations is below and can be found online on DEC's website.

The meetings will feature a presentation introducing the primary tenets of the plan including stocking, wild trout management, fishing regulations, and access. The presentation will be followed by a discussion period during which attendees can ask questions and provide informed comment.

DEC plans on releasing a draft trout stream management plan for public comment later this year.

Meeting schedule

Note: Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and meetings will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
