The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation wants to hear from you!
Stop by the DEC's open house at the Greater Niagara Fishing Expo on Saturday, February 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Cataract Room. Here, you can meet and chat with the biologists and managers who oversee the fisheries of New York State. Experts will be manning tables and answering questions about Lake Ontario and its tributaries; Lake Erie and its tributaries; the Niagara and St. Lawrence rivers; Great Lakes fish production and stocking; inland fisheries management; law enforcement; and the DEC's HuntFishNY app, which includes the popular 'Tackle Box' interactive fishing map.
The DEC will also be participating in the Salmon School and Walleye School Socials to discuss management actions and the state of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie.
As usual, DEC will continue to operate its popular booth in the main exhibit hall throughout the duration of the Expo, Thursday, February 15 to Sunday, February 18, 2024.
We are proud to be partnering with DEC to provide outreach and insights on the excellent fisheries available in New York State. Be sure to take advantage of these innovative learning opportunities!
