This is a survey to help the state gather information about how lakes are used for fishing, and what anglers feel about the fishing conditions. Much of the information that anyone has about anglers comes from large fishing derbys, which may not represent the conditions that most anglers encounter. This form is meant to enable ordinary anglers on our lakes to give their views.
Here's the angler survey form

HAB Action Plans Released
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the release of 12 tailored action plans to address the causes of harmful algal blooms in priority waterbodies across upstate New York. The action plans outline specific projects and programs to be implemented at priority lakes and also identify actions that can be taken at waterbodies statewide to reduce the threat of HABs. These plans are a central component of the Governor's $65 million, four-point initiative unveiled in the 2018 State of the State to aggressively combat HABs and protect drinking water quality and the upstate economy.
