    Every time they do this I ask "WHY ,what does it help?" It's catch and release so those fish will make it to the hatchery,however the rest of the river is "snag and rope" those fish are going into the garbage.IT just does n't make any sense!

    A catch and release section of the salmon river by. That is fly fishing only.

    Its listed here and there - one place even has a photo of the sign.
     
    Last time I recall this happening was the year of the last real huge run that kinda really slowed above  the Pineville bridge in very low waters.
    Fish came by in the dozens instead of 3s and 4s that year- not like that since.'
    Much spawning by Kings and Hos took place lower that time too - likely because of the levels.

    r3g3 Facebook is one of the last places I would depend upon for accurate information.  Lol  Kind of odd don't you think that a poster on Facebook would have this information yet nothing on the NYSDEC website.

    They close that section to insure that they will have enough Salmon for eggs,they close a catch and RELEASE area but the snaggers below the Altmar bridge can snag away!!!It is n't making any sense ro me.
