Trout and salmon fishing season opens on April 1 in New York. Now through June the state Department of Conservation is re-stocking trout in local waterways, with brown and rainbow trout being added. In Greene County, just brown trout are being added to Basic Creek, Batavia Kill, Catskill Creek, Colgate Lake, East Kill, Greens Lake, Kaaterskill Creek, Schoharie Creek, and West Kill. In Columbia County, brown and rainbow trout are being added to Claverack Creek, Kinderhook Creek, Kline Kill, Ore Pit Pond, Queechy Lake, Roeliff Jansen Kill, Taghkanic Creek, and Weed Mines Pond. A DEC website lists the specific amounts of the types of trout being put in local waters this spring, including in Albany, Rensselaer, Schoharie, and Delaware counties.
