The temperatures might still be a little chilly here on Grand Island, but that isn’t stopping the local anglers from making the most of the first days of trout season. The season started on Sunday, April 2, and fishing enthusiasts from throughout the region are already hauling in some pretty impressive catches.
If you’d like to get out and participate in this year’s trout season, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently stocked Hyde Park Lake and Gill Creek in Niagara Falls with about 2,500 brown trout. The DEC also plans to stock the lower Niagara River, Lake Ontario and Oppenheim Park Pond with more than 80,000 brown and rainbow trout later this spring.
Located just 15 minutes from Town Hall Terrace, Niagara Falls is a particularly popular fishing destination for anglers in our area. If you want to stay on Grand Island, you can also do some fishing in Beaver Island State Park. Be sure to get your fishing license first, though! You can easily apply for your license online on the DEC website. Trout season runs until October 15, so you still have plenty of time to get outside and enjoy the many great sport fishing spots in Western New York.
