Fishing Season goes into full swing

Season Opener for Walleye, Northern Pike, Pickerel and Tiger Muskellunge

State Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Pete Grannis today reminded anglers that fishing season in New York gets into full swing on May 1, the opening day for Walleye, Northern Pike, Pickerel and Tiger Muskellunge. Also, the catch-and-release bass season is now underway on most state water bodies.

"Our recent angler survey reinforced how popular warm-water fishing is in New York," Commissioner Grannis said, "and good fishing opportunities for black bass, walleye, panfish and other warm-water species can be found throughout the state in 2010."

Of the warm-water species, walleye are the traditional primary target this time of year; walleye fishing opportunities exist in more than 100 water bodies throughout the state. Over the last five years and in almost all regions of the state, DEC has stocked 60 waters with walleye fry or fingerlings. Through these and other DEC management actions, new walleye populations are being established and others are being maintained or restored.
