There are two areas of Special Regulations. The first is on the Lower Section 1 Map, and begins at the mouth of Neil Creek and runs to the northern boundary of the Village of Avoca. The second is on the Lower Section 2 map, and begins at the Route 415 bridge in Kanona and runs to the northern boundary of the Bath Veterans' Administration facility. The regulations in both areas are the same: Open all year - 12" minimum length - daily limit 2 trout per person - artificial lures only.
PUBLIC FISHING RIGHTS AREAS
The Conhocton River fly fisher is very fortunate to have extensive areas of public fishing access. When you see this sign, it means that the landowner has consented to sell a permanent easement to DEC to provide public fishing access to the river. This access is for fishing only, and generally allows walking along the bank, usually in a 33 ft. strip on one or both sides of the river. Please honor this privilege by treading lightly. Stay out of planted fields; be careful with fences. Please don't leave any litter.
