    How quick we forget : Record-low water levels, rise in algal blooms among concerns linked to changing Great Lakes climate by Tim Anderson ~ February 2013 ~ Stateline Midwest » In December, water levels on lakes Michigan and Huron reached an all-time recorded low. And concerns about this trend have never been higher — as reflected in much of the discussion at a January meeting in Chicago that explored the new Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. For the first time in its 41-year history, the binational pact makes adapting to climate change a priority for action on both sides of the border. Though they have always fluctuated, the recent low readings in lakes Michigan and Huron have led many to conclude that “we have reached a tipping point,” noted John Nevin of the International Joint Commission (IJC), with warmer air and water temperatures leading to increased evaporation of Great Lakes waters. “The commission is very concerned about it,” Nevin said at the meeting, which was sponsored by the IJC as well as the Alliance for the Great Lakes and Consulate General of Canada in Chicago. But can concerns about lower water levels and other climate-change impacts be translated into meaningful action? As many meeting speakers and participants noted, part of the challenge for Great Lakes policymakers is taking action in the face of many unknowns — how much the climate will change in the coming decades, for example, and how it will impact the ecosystem. Current forecasts of lake levels, Nevin said, show that they will be lower than normal over the next 30 years, but remain within the six feet of fluctuating levels recorded during different periods of the 20th century. “Beyond 30 years,” he said, “ it is unknown.” https://www.csgmidwest.org/policyresearch/0213glclimate.aspx We blamed "climate change" for low water levels in 2013 and now we blame it for high water in 2017 and 2019. Problem is our "knowledge" is limited but we like to think we have everything figured out.

  6. They increased the flow today to 10,000 cms In 2017 they did go to 10,400 cms for awhile but I think they also had to curtail some of the shipping due to the current, hopefully they will do it again

They've increased the outflow 5 time since the 1st: https://ijc.org/en/loslrb/watershed/outflow-changes DATE HOUR/ FROM/DE TO/À (YYYY-MM-DD) HEURE (m3/s) (ft3/s) (m3/s) (ft3/s) 2019-06-04 0901 9,500 335,500 9,800 346,100 2019-06-03 1801 9,400 332,000 9,500 335,500 2019-06-03 1101 9,100 321,400 9,400 332,000 2019-06-02 1701 9,000 317,800 9,100 321,400 2019-06-01 1201 8,800 310,800 9,000 317,800 2019-05-31 0901 8,600 303,700 8,800 310,800 Hopefully it's enough to start lowering the lake level
  8. You can try Bay Bridge: https://baybridgesportshop.com/rooms Launch and docks right outside your door. They are at the far end of the bay so with the 5 mph speed limit it will take a little while to get to the chute.

DEC Delivers Press Release - Information to keep you connected and informed from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Share or view as a web page || Update preferences or unsubscribe DEC Announces State of Salmon River Fishery Meeting DEC Biologists to Provide Updates on Status of Salmon River's Fishery on April 11 in Pulaski "Report Card" on Progress to Achieving Objectives Outlined in New Salmon River Fisheries Management Plan The public will have the opportunity to learn about the state of the Salmon River fishery at a public meeting to be held in Pulaski, Oswego County, on April 11, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today. The meeting will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Pulaski High School auditorium, 4624 Salina St., Pulaski. "The Salmon River provides world-class angling opportunities that generate substantial recreational and economic benefits to the surrounding communities," Commissioner Seggos said. "This first-ever State of the Salmon River meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for everyone interested in the river to interact with the professionals that study and manage the fishery and learn about the progress we've made to improve this fishery." The Salmon River Fisheries Management Plan, developed in 2018 in close consultation with a variety of stakeholders, focuses on objectives and management strategies to maintain and improve the lake-run salmonid fisheries of the 17 miles of the main stem Salmon River and its major tributaries below the Lighthouse Hill Reservoir. At the meeting, DEC will provide an overview of ongoing activities and report on recent progress toward achieving the objectives outlined in the plan. In addition, staff will review planned activities for the coming year. The meeting will provide ample time at the end of the scheduled program for the audience to ask questions and interact with the presenters. For additional information, contact David Lemon, DEC Region 7 Fisheries Manager, at the Cortland office, (607) 753-3095 or email [email protected] http://www.dec.ny.gov/press/press.html The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation respects your right to privacy and welcomes your feedback | Update preferences or unsubscribe | Learn more about DEC Delivers.

  10. I've been using a Boga for years but when the surface temp is warm during the summer it still doesn't work all that well I'm going to try a SeaQualizer Release this year to release them at 50-100 foot deep depending on temp: http://seaqualizer.com/products/the-standard-seaqualizer-50-100-150ft.html#product-reviews I'll hook it to my 4th rigger and slowly drop them back down. Hopefully the colder water will help revive them quicker.
  11. DEC Press Release: DEC Experts to Discuss Changes to Chinook Salmon Stocking For 2019 New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos today announced public meetings on the status of Lake Ontario's alewife population and changes to 2019 trout and salmon stocking The meetings will be held in Niagara, Oswego, and Monroe counties in October. "Lake Ontario and its tributaries provide world-class salmon and trout angling opportunities," Commissioner Seggos said. "Salmon and trout fishing in Lake Ontario has been outstanding this season and DEC remains committed to ensuring that the ecological, recreational, and economic benefits of this sport fishery are sustained through science-based management practices." Lake Ontario's world-class Chinook salmon fishery is dependent on a healthy alewife population as prey. Due to forecasted declines in the adult alewife population, DEC is acting to reduce predatory demands on alewife to promote the long-term sustainability of the trophy Chinook salmon fishery. Poor survival rates in 2013 and 2014 resulted in negative impacts on the adult alewife population. Survey results from 2018 confirmed that these impacts are ongoing and indicated that the large numbers of alewife produced in 2016 experienced lower than expected survival. In addition, below average alewife production in 2017 exacerbated forecasted declines. In an ongoing effort to effectively manage Lake Ontario fisheries, DEC reduced the number of Chinook salmon and lake trout stocked in Lake Ontario by 20 percent in 2017 and 2018. Based on this new information, DEC will reduce Chinook salmon stocking by an additional 20 percent in 2019. Combined salmon and trout stocking by DEC in Lake Ontario in 2019 will still exceed 2.7 million fish, and DEC biologists and fisheries managers are optimistic that excellent fishing will continue. During the meetings, DEC will present the latest science guiding the state's efforts, and provide the opportunity for interested participants to ask questions. More information on the 2019 Salmon and Trout Stocking Levels in Lake Ontario is available on DEC's website. Meeting dates and locations are: Thursday, Oct. 4: 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Building, 4487 Lake Ave., Lockport, Niagara County. Tuesday, Oct. 9: 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Donald Schleiter Lodge and Pavillion, 199 East Manitou Rd. in Braddock Bay Park, Rochester, Monroe County. Wednesday, Oct. 10: 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Pulaski High School auditorium, 4624 Salina St., Pulaski, Oswego County. Members of the public that cannot attend a meeting can provide comments via email to: [email protected] For further information, please contact Steve LaPan, New York Great Lakes Fisheries Section Head, at the Cape Vincent Fisheries Research Station, (315) 654-2147. Lake Ontario waters comprise more than 2.7 million acres and support thriving populations of fish, including a variety of trout and salmon, bass, walleye, yellow perch, and panfish. A recent statewide angler survey estimated that more than 2.6 million angler days were spent on Lake Ontario and its major tributaries, with the estimated value of the fisheries exceeding $112 million annually for local economies. DEC recently announced that the 2018 fishing season yielded outstanding results, with catch rates on Lake Ontario for Chinook salmon 227 percent above the previous five-year average. The catch rate for all trout and salmon species combined also surpassed the previous record high, more than 37 percent above the previous five-year average. http://www.dec.ny.gov/press/press.html
  12. DEC Delivers Press Release -Information to keep you connected and informed from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Share or view as a web page || Update preferences or unsubscribe DEC Announces Record-Breaking Fishing in Lake Ontario Survey Reveals Catch Rates of Chinook Salmon Double the Five-Year Average during Spring and Early Summer 2018 New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos today announced that fishing for trout and salmon in Lake Ontario has set records this year, with veteran anglers reporting some of the best fishing in decades. "The New York waters of Lake Ontario provide a world-famous recreational fishery for trout and salmon, and fishing has been exceptional this summer," Commissioner Seggos said. "Preliminary results from the Lake Ontario Fishing Boat Survey indicate that fishing for Chinook salmon has been outstanding along the entire New York shoreline." Fishing success is measured by "catch rate," which is the number of fish caught per boat trip. The catch rate for Chinook salmon during April to June 2018 set a record that was 227 percent above the previous five-year average. The catch rate for all trout and salmon species combined also surpassed the previous record high, more than 37 percent above the previous five-year average. Fishing for brown trout and coho salmon has also been excellent in 2018, with catch rates 38 and 21 percent higher than their respective, previous five-year averages. Atlantic salmon represent a relatively small portion of the Lake Ontario fishery but catch rates for Atlantic salmon were 73 percent above the previous five-year average. Chuck Parker, President of the New York State Conservation Council (NYSCC), said, "This is the second year in a row that the take of Chinook has been above average at Oswego, as reported by Council members. There are so many variables that can and do affect the quality of the fishing opportunities we have. We at the NYSCC recognize that the science-based management practices of the DEC's Bureau of Fisheries are an integral force in sustaining the New York's world class Lake Ontario fishery." Captain Vince Pierleoni, of Olcott, said, "It's the best Chinook fishing I've seen since 1989." Captain Bob Songin, of Pt. Breeze, said, "The fishing out of Wilson Harbor to the Niagara River has been spectacular, with many Chinook and coho salmon hitting as well as the occasional lake trout mixed in." Fishing for Chinook salmon and brown trout has also been great in Eastern Lake Ontario with large numbers of fish caught all along the shoreline. Oswego produced a 28.1-pound Chinook salmon that won the grand prize in the Spring Lake Ontario Counties (LOC) Trout and Salmon Derby. Lake Ontario is consistently ranked among the top fishing destinations in the country by national publications. Lake Ontario and its embayments and tributaries comprise more than 2.7 million acres and support thriving populations of fish, including a variety of trout, salmon, bass, walleye, yellow perch, and panfish. A recent statewide angler survey estimated that more than 2.6 million angler days were spent on Lake Ontario and major tributaries. The estimated value of these fisheries exceeded $112 million annually to local economies. DEC encourages anglers to head out on Lake Ontario and experience some of the best trout and salmon fishing in the U.S. Additional information about fishing Lake Ontario can be found on DEC's website. https://www.dec.ny.gov/press/press.html The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation respects your right to privacy and welcomes your feedback | Update preferences or unsubscribe | Learn more about DEC Delivers.
