For all those sports who look forward to a road trip up to the Salmon River to hit the Lower Fly Fishing Area this time of year, the usual opening of Sept. 15 has been postponed until Oct. 31 says the NYDEC.
This is due to low water conditions. This is the area right below the Altmar hatchery. The DEC needs to be sure enough salmon enter the hatchery to provide eggs for future stocking.
