From NYS Department of Environmental Education:
Hotlines are among the most popular pages on our website. The hotlines provide information such as fishing locations, fishing conditions, and types of fish found in the waters of New York State. With updates every week, these pages are a great way to get the scoop on where the fish are biting as you plan your next fishing trip. Good luck!
