Trout Stocking Program Thrives in Second Year
Trout fishing is growing in the Salmon
River, in part due to an expanded fish stocking program started by the
Douglaston Salmon Run in 2014.
This year, 485 brown trout from the
SUNY-Morrisville Hatchery were stocked in early June, captured in this video by
Salmon River guide and videographer Jay Peck. Jay has been fishing and
guiding the the north country of New York for more than 20 years, and is
the owner of Lost River Productions.
Peck is excited about opportunities to fish the Salmon River in a
traditionally dormant season. "The Salmon River has potential to
become an incredible summer fishery through the introduction of these
trout," said Peck. "These browns are a durable species that can tolerate
warmer water conditions."
