Fishing for muskellunge

Musky fishing regulation changes are in effect on New York waters for the season opener June 20 for the St. Lawrence River, Great Lakes and tributaries, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has reminded anglers.
“Fishing for muskellunge, northern pike, walleye and channel catfish is expected to be outstanding across the state this year,” said DEC Commissioner Joe Martens.
Changes affecting the North Country include:
 For the St. Lawrence Seaway, opening date remains the same: third Saturday in June (June 20, 2015). Minimum size has been increased to 54 inches on Lake Ontario and the Niagara and St. Lawrence rivers to make it consistent with Lake Erie; throughout the rest of the state, minimum is increased to 40 inches.
