Two men are charged with poaching trout and salmon from the Saranac River in the City of Plattsburgh, Clinton County, New York.
Environmental Conservation Police Officers arrested 38-year-old Joshua Todd and 34-year-old Christopher J. Dumas,
both of Plattsburgh, N.Y., on Tuesday, December 15, 2015. The two men
allegedly were snagging fish. They're charged with taking fish by means other than angling and Mr. Dumas is also charged with fishing without a license.
Rich Redman, President of the Lake Champlain Chapter of Trout Unlimited
said, "This is great news for every law-abiding angler in the North
Country. It's great to see the salmon back, and DEC protecting them.”
A primary indicator of strengthening salmon populations is annual
spawning runs. DEC staff observed good fall runs in the Ausable River,
Boquet River and especially the Saranac River. It’s a great sign for
these fish populations, the health of Lake Champlain, anglers, and the
economic health of local communities that see the benefit from improved
Todd and Dumas are scheduled to appear in the City of Plattsburgh Local
Criminal Court on Tuesday, January 5, 2016. They both face fines.
