Every year on the last weekend in April our local Lions club sponsors a "Trout Derby". We get about 3000 of "the best trout fisherman in the world" crowding our shores on my local river fishing for tagged fish with various dollar amounts assigned to them. The event lasts two nights and two days. For a week after you can't catch a fish at all.

Wow...that may sound like a cool idea, but think of the negative effects this must pose to this fragile ecosystem. By the way what river is that? I think I may have fished this stream once before (not during the derby)

Hi Jamie,
I am originally from Syracuse and a graduate of Syracuse University-School of art and School of Education. I grew up in the suburb of Solvay. I moved to my current home in Wellsville to take a job. The river in the photo is the Genesee River in Allegany County in NY State. The river runs south to north through Wellsville with the best trout fishing being in our area. I'm posting a map along with the photos of the area.

My best,
Mark

I thought it was the Genesee, I have fished that once with my uncle. I am having a lot of fun out here in Syracuse...especially with the starting of my club and fishing all these rivers once unknown to me. Hopefully sometime this spring I will frequent this stream. I used to live on the Pennsylvania side of the southern tier so I used to live closer to that stream...although I did not fly fish at this time I enjoyed it very much.

Hi again,Jamie,
Ever fish Nine Mile Creek outside of Camillus, NY? It use to be one of my favorite streams. Olive scud patterns worked wonders there. Also liked Limestone Creek out in Fayetteville. Also, you should get out to the Carpenter's Brook Fish Hatchery between Auburn and Syracuse. I believe it is still operated by Onondaga County, not NY State.

Mark,
Just wondering what some of the tagged trout are worth?
I to would like to LINE THE BANK.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

I'm actually trying to plan a river side clean-up at 9 mile with the club...probably sometime before the snow so it is nice and clean for trout day. I haven't gotten to fish limestone or 9 mile yet but that will come soon enough. I spent a day on the Chittenango and did amazing...Caught a 21 incher (largest to date), 17 incher, and about a half a dozen 6-12 inch range. Some of my friends did a service project at Carpenter's Brook hatchery, but they didn't need anymore help...I will hopefully be getting there soon to check that out. Thanks for all the advise and the olive scud is one of my favs too.

Hey, at least they aren't all using a pound of split shot. :)

I suppose we're talking about split-shot minimums, Jason?
