Perch Emerald Shiners

Recommended Posts

There appears to be a lack of emeralds in the river again. They were thick and heavy up to a month ago. We've been serching every day, with no luck . I just hope that this year doesn't turn out like last year.  Does anyone know when the lift to Ft. Of Ferry will be completed?

1. I've been getting emeralds off the sewer plant by the International RR bridge, right at the first concrete piling as you walk towards the foot of Ferry.

2. The DEC was posting on its fishing hotline website that the bridge is supposed to open Spring 2016.  The latest post said that the bridge is still closed.  Haven't heard of any opening dates yet.

3. I got a report in my email on the emerald shiner situation.  It was a status report from a scientific study going on.  I'll post the report when I can find it again, but it looks like the emeralds picked up a couple of diseases & parasites which didn't do much for them.
