Seasonal Regulations for Great Lakes Tributaries

Effective Dates

Special tributary regulations are effective SEPTEMBER 1 THROUGH MARCH 31 for all tributaries except the Salmon River in Oswego County where the effective dates are AUGUST 15 THROUGH APRIL 14.

Fishing Hours

Fishing at night (one-half hour after sunset until one-half hour before sunrise) is prohibited, except in the Black River (Jefferson County) from Lake Ontario upstream to the Route 180 bridge in Dexter, where fishing is permitted at all times, and in the Salmon River in Oswego County, where fishing at night is permitted from Lake Ontario to the Route 3 bridge from April 1 through August 14.

Hooks

Hooks attached to any lure, except an artificial  fly must be free-swinging.

Hooks may have a gap (distance between the  shank and the point) of no more than one half inch.

Use of hooks with added weight is prohibited,  except that artificial flies with no more than one-eighth ounce of added weight may be used. For the purposes of this regulation, the method by which weight is added to a hook does not affect classification as an "artificial fly" provided the conditions of the definition of an "artificial fly" (page 14) are otherwise met. Only one hook with a single hook point is permitted, except on floating lures, as outlined below.
