DEC Announces Temporary Closure of Black Creek Fishing Access Site Launch on Oct. 14-15

Two-Day Closure in Effect for Boat Launch's Parking Lot Maintenance

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced a temporary closure of the Black Creek Fishing Access Site boat launch at 16 Black Creek Road in the town of Chili, Monroe County. The Black Creek Fishing Access Site closure is anticipated to occur Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15 to allow for maintenance of the parking lot. Anglers can find a list of other places to fish in Monroe County on the DEC website and also on the new 'Tackle Box' feature launched earlier this year.

The Tackle Box is available on DEC's HuntFishNY smartphone app, (available for iOS and Android) which provides information on nearly all State fishing regulations, waterbodies, State-operated fishing access sites, stocking information, and other useful features like photos to help identify fish likely found in a certain river, lake, or stream. More information on the HuntFishNY Mobile app can be found on DEC's website.
