Default New herring laws

Just got back from HH Park. Had a conversation with encon officer who told me the new law for fishing with herring on the river was a total of five herring may be caught in one day. Not five in possession. He further stated that two rods could be used for stripers and one for jigging herring you could not use three rods for stripers. He told me this information was on the Dec web site, I could not find the new information. He was checking everyone for fishing license.

I hope this is not the cse.... I spoke with a Encon officer at the Postenkill creek the other day and he said none of the new laws on herring were passed. He was there cheking licenses but didnt have any problems with the guys catching herring. I also checked the website and seen nothing about and new herring rules. I find it very had to figure out the whole two rods for stripers and one for herring but that we cant use three for stripers. I wonder how they will enforce that rule if they are actually new rules? Tight lines

You couldn't find it because he is full of s**t.

Regulation Change: As of August 17, 2011, the number of allowable lines, with or without a rod, that may be used for angling in freshwater was increased to 3 lines. Where ice fishing is permitted, 3 hand lines plus 5 tip-ups may be used.

Also nothing has changed since last year with the herring situation

Just checked the DEC site the officer was probably refering to the Hickory shad limit of 5 a day I seen nothing about a new limit on herring. And you are allowed 2 poles to fish stripers and one to jig for herring.


A BAD DAY OF FISHING IS BETTER THAN A GOOD DAY OF ANYTHING !

I've been tryin to reach DEC for 3 days to get a answer to this question and all I get is no one is avalaible to take my call at this time but I was told the three pole law was for freshwater only but you could jig herring with a 3rd pole so your guess is as good as mine sorry

i just got off the phone with encon, he looked it up and called me back. everyone was rigth but interpreted differently.it is 3 rods total meaning: 3 rods rigged with bait for stripers and cannot jig with a 4th one or 2 rods rigged with bait for stripers 1 rigged with the herring rig if you are jigging at the same time.
