The Esopus Creek is now closed to fishing.

 

Just received this email from Phoenicia, NY:

"NOV 3, 2016 — Shortly after 5pm, the office of the DEC notified us that the Esopus is officially closed to fishing for the rest of 2016. Thank you to everyone who shared this petition to help get the word out. This is a small example of the power of our voice. Within hours we generated an enormous buzz and in one day we made it happen. Governor Cuomo, Thanks for green lighting this important resource management recommendation from DEC. We'll see you on the river next year!"
