As part of efforts to make fishing more enjoyable, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has posted Management Category signs on most of the State’s 1,500 miles of public fishing rights.
These signs convey not only the management category for a particular stream reach, but also the regulations associated with the reach. Look for the white and green signs with a trout on them when fishing trout streams with public fishing rights.
For more information view the Inland Trout Stream Management Plan.
