Off the rod tip: Why does the DEC stock fish? Ever think of that? Answer: Some are stocked to enhance recreational fishing, others to restore native species to waters they formerly occupied. And local assistance from volunteers is a necessity.
DEC operates 12 fish hatcheries
throughout the state and it is critical that budget cuts don't affect
our hatcheries. We all know proposed license fees are excessive for
2010, however it would be great if that money was used strictly for the
hunting and fishing opportunities afforded to us. No one minds MODEST
increases but 2010 increases boggles the mind. Looks like our
leaders are trying to balance the sate budget on the backs of the
outdoors people. Contact your sate representatives.
The Van Hornesville Fish Hatchery is Just east of
Utica NY, south of the NYS thruway on route 80
[1285 Chyle Road]
This is how the pipes get to the water for
stocking at the 425 pier in Wilson
Good size 'Bows eh?
Stocking another load just inside the Harbor.
This is right behind the water processing plant.
Thar' she goes!
5,900 Rainbows were stocked today!
What would we do without
these Wilson Volunteers?
