Man Charged For Illegal Fishing in the Hudson Valley
A man is accused of illegally fishing in the Hudson Valley.
Recently, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ECO Ricky Wood responded to Livingston Manor to investigate a complaint of a person fishing for trout with live bait and possibly keeping the trout illegally in the no-kill section of the Willowemoc Creek, which only allows artificial lures and catch-and-release fishing.
The fisherman allegedly denied that he had caught any fish. But Wood and his K9, Deming, observed him catch at least one trout, police say.
K9 Deming, who is trained in the detection of fish, found two trout the fisherman caught and unsuccessfully hid in the bushes, according to the DEC.
The unnamed fisherman was issued tickets for fishing contrary to regulations in specially designated waters and taking protected fish except as permitted by law. Both tickets are returnable to the Town of Rockland Court.
