Biologists to discuss Lake Ontario fishery

Albany, N.Y. (AP) -- The Department of Environmental Conservation will update the public about the state of Lake Ontario fisheries at meetings in Monroe, Niagara and Oswego counties next month.

Lake Ontario and its tributaries support a variety of trout and salmon, bass, walleye, yellow perch and panfish. A 2007 statewide angler survey estimated more than 2.6 million angler days were spent on Lake Ontario and major tributaries.

At the meetings, biologists from DEC, the U.S. Geological Survey and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources will make presentations. Topics include status of trout and salmon fisheries, stocking programs and fisheries management plans.

The meetings will be March 3 at Rochester Institute of Technology, March 13 at the Cooperative Extension in Lockport and March 18 at DEC's training academy in Pulaski.
