The DEC recently announced that the extended period of ice, blanketed by deep snow, is likely to result in fish die-offs in numerous area ponds. As winter ice starts to melt away, the agency starts receiving calls from concerned anglers and pond owners reporting large numbers of dead fish. According to the announcement, "winter die-off of fish, is caused by oxygen depletion in the water through the winter. Ice that accumulates on ponds or lakes prevents wind action from adding oxygen to the wate ...

GSLFF’s spring fishing contest is set for May 2 by Dick Nelson

There has to be a reason April 1 is called All Fools Day, because those of us who wet a line certainly lived up to the description. Actually, there were fewer fools out than you might think. I don't know if it was because the season opened in the middle of the week, the early morning cold temperatures or because area waters hadn't been stocked. Whatever the reason, tradition doesn't seem to be as big as it once was as even some of the more popular locations were shy of anglers, and among the few ...

Trout season opened Wednesday — no fooling by Dick Nelson

The first of April has always been a day for trout fishermen and fools, and sometimes it isn't easy to separate one from the other, especially on opening day. But it's difficult getting into a trout fishing frame of mind with two to three feet of ice on the lakes and morning air temperatures hovering around freezing. Even so, the statewide season for trout and salmon is now open and regardless of the weather and/or stream conditions, thousands of traditionalists will be out and about with family ...

Abolish the APA Act To the editor: The Adirondack Park Agency Act (APA Act) 1973, authorizing the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) to mandate how the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) shall manage Forest Preserve state land in the Adirondack Park, violates Article XVI of the State Constitution, and is therefore illegal legislation. Law adopted into the Constitution in 1895, specifically authorizes only the DEC to make all rules and regulations for public use of the Forest Preserve. The ...

Why is state ignoring Fulton County? Dear Editor: On Thursday, December 11, Governor Cuomo announced the latest 2014 grant awards from New York State's Regional Economic Development Councils, including 62 projects in the Mohawk Valley Region. Fulton County was the only upstate county in the state that was totally neglected by this round of the State's economic development program. Our region of the state was hit hard when the American manufacturing sector began shrinking several decades ago. Si ...
