NY fishing season rolls on, open to more species | News
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The fishing season in New York is rolling on, with sport fish like walleye, northern pike, pickerel and tiger muskellunge fair game as of Saturday.
The Department of Environmental Conservation says Thursday that includes catch and release fishing for black bass in many places and a special black bass season that allows taking one 20-inch or longer fish each day from Lake Erie.
The agency says anglers should make sure the waters they want to fish are open to catch and release. The regular season for black bass is set to open on June 16.
