About Public Fishing Rights
The North Branch of the Salmon River is located in Oswego County near the town of Redfield. There are 8.9 miles of Public Fishing Rights (PFR’s) along this medium sized mostly brush lined stream. Both wild and stocked brook trout can be found in the river which is stocked annually with around 2,000 one year-old brook trout (8-10”).
Public Fishing Rights (PFR’s) are permanent easements purchased by the NYSDEC from willing landowners, giving anglers the right to fish and walk along the bank (usually a 33’ strip on one or both banks of the stream). This right is for the purpose of fishing only and no other purpose. Treat the land with respect to insure the continuation of this right and privilege. Fishing privileges may be available on some other private lands with permission of the land owner. Courtesy toward the land-owner and respect for their property will insure their continued use.
Fishing Regulations Statewide Angling Regulations apply EXCEPT as noted below: Trout - Any Size, Limit 5 with no more than 2 longer than 12”, April 1 - Oct 15
