  1. Here is the outflow data for this year: https://ijc.org/en/loslrb/watershed/outflow-changes Lake Ontario Outflow Changes Outflows from Lake Ontario are established on a weekly basis by the International Lake Ontario - St. Lawrence River Board in accordance with the current regulation plan and the International Joint Commission's Orders of Approval. The table below displays the outflow changes that have occurred this year. All flows are reported in cubic metres and feet per second.

  3. Now is a Great time to take a newbee friend fishing: Free Fishing on Lake Ontario (including the Lower Niagara River) and St. Lawrence River Governor Cuomo is giving New York residents and visitors an opportunity to cast a line this summer in some of the best fishing spots in the state - Lake Ontario (including the Lower Niagara River) and the St. Lawrence River - even if they don't have a fishing license. Through September 2, 2019, all anglers are able to fish the New York waters of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River without needing to purchase a state fishing license. Lake Ontario is known as a haven for trophy trout and salmon fishing. In its 2019 rankings, and for the first time ever, Bassmaster Magazinenamed the St. Lawrence River the top bass fishing destination in the nation. While lake levels are expected to remain above average, recent history has proven that fishing in these waters will remain first-rate. There is great fishing to be had by anglers of all skill levels from shore or by boat. For those interested in a guided trip, many fishing charter companies and guides are available for hire. During this time, all applicable state and federal laws and regulations regarding seasons, catch rates, and size limits still apply. There are additional 2019 free fishing dates later in the season, including September 28, National Hunting and Fishing Day, and November 11, Veterans Day. To learn more about fishing Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence and New York State fishing regulations, DEC's Guide to Great Lakes Fishing (PDF) contains valuable information about the area's waters and tips for increasing success.

  4. If you're still using a fair amount of gear lube I would listen to Hank (L&M) and check it out to be safe. Hank's old enough to have forgotten more than I know
  5. How did you refill your reservoir when you changed the oil? The correct way is to pump oil in from the bottom until it comes out your top vent then put in the vent plug and keep pumping oil into the bottom to fill the oil reservoir and oil lines. It is normal for the oil to "burp" itself and the oil level in the reservoir to drop a little when you run the drive to get rid of any trapped air. If you quit pumping oil when the level reached the vent and then refilled the reservoir from the top cap instead of the bottom you will have a lot more air to burp out. At this point I would continue to watch the oil level and add as needed, it should level off soon. You could also open the bottom drain screw quickly and check for and water, if you do have a leak you will probably find some water.

    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.

  11. 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
  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 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.

  15. 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.
