New DEC rules establish St. Lawrence-Lake Ontario corridor and others for moving bait for personal use
The Department of Environmental Conservation wants to change the rules on baitfish to allow overland transport of personally collected baitfish within specific corridors, as long as the baitfish are used in the same waters where they were collected.
The three transportation corridors include along the Lower Niagara River-Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River; Lake Erie-Upper Niagara River; and the Hudson River from Troy to the Tappan Zee Bridge.
The designated waters include their tributaries upstream to the first impassable barrier to fish.
