On May 4, a storm that brought severe high winds to much of upstate New York caused widespread power outages in many locations throughout the North Country, including DEC’s Adirondack Hatchery. Although the backup generator at the hatchery functioned properly during the outage, restored power from the main service line was cut off due to a malfunctioning transfer switch. This malfunction prevented the flow of well water to raceways holding fry, quickly depleting the water of oxygen. It is estimated that 41,000 of the 296,000 fry in the raceways survived.

 Landlocked salmon. Understanding that i am ignorant and naive ,why does govt. spend so much time,effort and tax money on giving sport fishing everything they want? So its numbers? people like me don't rate but anglers have the juice?  This native fishkeeping is too frustrating  a hobby ,depending on  where you live. Sorry, I 'll stop beating that blue sucker now.

Anglers are a big part (60%+ in most states) of what brings money to the state agency. Keeping the angler happy means a pay check at the end of the day.

Part of the calculation is that Sport Fishing brings dollars to the economy. In state dollars or out of state dollars; its money for the economy and that's what governments always want. I'm not making a value judgement. This is simply a fact.
