my neighbor up on the EB seen otters...to me or any fisherman , this is pretty bad news imho.. I seen lots of mink too this season flushing little fish from under the rocks looking off the bridges..Bottomline is, the predators and the internet advertising links especially are overwhelming the natives as well as the fewer stockings the DEC does about the past decade.. I definitely see the difference .. oh the deep pools have fish but nothing like a decade ago.. anyone else notice too many them fish ducks? they too too forage on the little natives depleting what there is in the streams. NYS needs to adopt a better stocking program for the Delaware watershed system. between the floods and internet research technolgies.. it is the least they can do for our fishing license fees. They do not even stock the reservoirs like they use to do.. too many greedy thugs with deep pockets are in control imho
What is your obsession with stocking? There is so much great wild trout water in the catskills and you are constantly hung up on the stocking and some conspiracy you seem to think the DEC has.
