Lewiston Smelt run

Recommended Posts

With the river water temperature at 72F., The smelt run has been reported now. At the below the Black Rock Canal Lock, a heavy run of emerald shiners is on now. It is best to package small bags of minnows and salt them and freeze them till the day you use them so they will have the bright shiny color. This is a good year for perch catches and emeralds are the native bait best to use. Check the DEC Regulations on use and transportation.
