Spring is here which means it's time to go fishing. There are hundreds of lakes, streams, ponds, and rivers to enjoy and trout and salmon begins soon. This Monday, April 1st, begins trout and salmon fishing season throughout New York state. According to News 10 ABC, the warmer waters are best for fishing in the state. The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) says that Long Island, the lower Hudson Valley and southwestern New York are best for fishing in the beginning of the season.

The DEC stocks over twelve hundred bodies of water with trout and salmon across New York state. If you would like to see where the DEC is stocking fish, you can see their list of planned stockings by county HERE. You can visit their website to get tips and effective fishing techniques.

Happy fishing everyone. Be safe and be ready for trout and salmon fishing season starting this Monday April 1st.
