New York State's Public Fishing Program
Abstract:Five years ago New York State began a program of acquisition and improvement of public fishing areas. The author, who is in charge of the administration of this project, explains its policies and progress. The program calls for the eventual acquisition by the state of 1,000 miles of trout streams. Half this mileage already has been purchased. The construction of improvements for the control of environmental conditions has been carried on partly by the Civilian Conservation Corps and partly by labor employed by the state. The cost of the program, including all expenses incident to acquisition, has averaged slightly less than $500 per mile.
