monroe Monroe County Fishing Report as of January 19, 2018

Recommended Posts

As part of this week's fishing report, we'd like to share this news release regarding Public Access to Genesee River at Lower Falls Closed:

 

City of Rochester (Friday, January 12, 2018) – Rochester Gas and Electric has closed public access to the Lower Falls/Genesee River from its Brewer Street Hydro Station due to the possibility of a sudden flow of water. The recent cold snaps followed by historic warm temperatures and snow melt could cause a sudden increase in the river flow from its spill gates. 

 

The temporary closure is from Middle Falls to the Veterans Memorial Bridge (Route 104 Overpass) at Genesee River (Keeler Expressway). The City has closed the entrances at the top of Hastings Street and the stairs in Maplewood Park.

 

Rochester Gas and Electric is installing a temporary dam to help ease the flow of water while upgrades are conducted on the spill gates. The City urges all fishermen and others who access the river via the affected entrances to heed these warnings until river access reopens, which is expected to happen by the end of the month.
