Pen Rearing Projects Information

Recommended Posts

Pen Rearing Information
Pen rearing projects around the lake aid in the stocking efforts of both Steelhead and Chinook Salmon. Pen rearing allows these fish to "smolt" and to grow to larger sizes before their release date. Unlike direct stocking, pen rearing increases survival and returns rates of these fish. These programs exist today because of the strong relationship between the DEC and the project's volunteers.
Please contact me if this information needs to be updated!

Rob;

Thanks for this post and taking the time to put it all together. I would like to add the ports that the pens are located at almost always looking for volunteers to help with getting the pens in and out of the water and feeding.

Also the fish need to be fed 4 or 5 times a day, I don't remember exactly how many times. Some of the port's ask for volunteers to help with this task.

Please volunteer your time to help.

Pens go back in the Spring of 2010.

Regards;

Mark

Just a thought, Now's the time to consider volunteering or donating to the pen rearing project in your area. Congrats to all the folks who have kept this project running thru the years. It's a lot of work for just a few, but many hands make the job a lot easier. Please donate today.

If anything is different than Legacy's above post please let me know & I'll edit it. Thanks Again :yes:

The Genesee Charter Boat Association got together to replace some netting and put them in on Monday 4/17/17.

 

Many more captains were involved than are pictured.....I dropped some pictures by accident.  Captain Rich Hajecki and Alex saved the day after a trip and he noticed that the pens had blown off the trailer.  Captain Matt French drove in from Greece to help save the pens.  Captain Sam Zucco (the club president) also came down to help.  

 

Not pictured was Captain Rick of Sharkbite, Bulldog, Captain Mark and I forgot the name of the guy to on the right in the second picture.  He is an awesome fisherman who has won many trout derbies!!!!  Please post your name so I can give you credit.  Anyone that I missed, sorry!  Please post.  


We will be doing a kids fishing seminar in May some time.  I will post when the fish come!  Tight Lines.

Wow. Hats off to all of you. Dedication and lots of hard work in all of you. We have to be happy with the white river tail water here. Big browns but not like Lake O. Thanks for the information. It was very informative. Best wishes with the fish

Just want to put it out there that I own a welding business and am also a pretty active fisherman on the lake. So I’m willing to fix any and all pens that need welding or replacement metal. I can be contacted on LOU or at 716-344-7446. Also I will donate travel time and go anywhere across the state, basically I’ll do the repairs for free. These pens insure the future of our fishery and I want to help in any way I can.

    • Chapter 70 Pen Stocking Tiger Muskies

      Yesterday, Chapter 70’s 2019 Gil Hamm grant project, through Muskies Inc. National came to light. In collaboration with the NYSDEC, Chapter 70 used the grant funds to build a pen to hold 1,200 tiger muskie fingerlings to release in Lake Moraine located in central New York. The premise of this experimental stocking method was to hold the fingerlings in the pen for the day and release them under the cover of darkness. Typically, the tigers seem to be very agitated and vulnerable to predation

    • LOTSA Olcott Pen Rearing Update

      The 2019 Lotsa pen rearing project is progressing exceptionally well.  This year we expanded the project by two pens.  The NYDEC authorized us to increase our steelhead program from 3500 fish to 10,000, meaning we needed two more pens.  DEC provided funding to have one pen built by the Orleans Niagara BOCES welding class.  Progress on this pen fell a little behind and the pen was not able to be completed by the time we needed it, so Bootleggers Cove Marina in Wilson stepped up and loaned us 2 of

    • Sandy Creek Pen Rearing Fish Release & Work party

      On Sunday April 28th we will be releasing our fish and having the end of the season work party.  We will first meet at East Fork Marina @1pm and discuss our plan of attack.  We will be carpooling to the yacht club and releasing the fish.  Once the fish are released,  we will then split up to complete the work needed to get everything cleaned up and put away for the year.  We need as many volunteers year's as possible to make this happen.  See you all on Sunday!

      I'd like to extend a huge thank you to all of the guys who work their butts off to set up, maintain, and run the pen projects, both at my home port of Sandy Creek and across the other ports - I know that many of them are active on LOU. Your efforts are noted and truly appreciated!
