The Empire States Marine Trades Association pushed Cuomo to lift the ban on Marina operations. I doubt public launches were included. That leaves most of us still excluded. Maybe Cuomo will clarify this later today.

DEC only closed theirs to follow the executive order .... i'm sure all unmanned launches will reopen

Buy yourself a small v bottom or Jon boat drag that bitch over the edge and toss it in the river and your fishing. That’s a shit load of coast line to launch and they can’t watch it all 🏿,🏿

Received an email from Jessica Best at New Paltz DEC (she runs the Cooperative Angler Program) stating that the ban on launches by DEC and NYS Parks has been lifted. I went on DEC's website to the pages listing the boat launches by county and the yellow box saying they are closed is no longer there. It does appear however that members of different households cannot occupy the same boat. Can someone else please confirm this information?
Thanks Jessica, you are the best.

This is from the email received from DEC. "Do not share a car, boat, canoe, or kayak with people not in your household while traveling to fishing or boating sites. Anglers fishing from boats should always be able to maintain at least six feet of distance between one another. For more information about the benefits of being outdoors safely and responsibly, go to DEC's website: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/119881.html. "

DISTANCING. This is on dec website
FISH LOCAL



Stay close to home. Keep your fishing trip short. Avoid high-traffic destinations.
BE SAFE
Avoid crowds and groups. Keep a distance of 6 feet or more from others. When fishing from a boat, make sure it's large enough so persons on board are at least 6 feet from one another.
STAY HOME
If you're not feeling well, stay home. Anyone 70 and older or with a compromised immune system should postpone their trip.
BE ADAPTIVE

For alternative fishing locations visit
Move quickly through parking lots and paths. If crowded, choose a different fishing location, or time to visit.
