About Public Fishing Rights
The Tioughnioga River is located in Cortland County near the Town of Marathon. There are four miles of Public Fishing Rights (PFR’s) along this large deep pooled river. Brown trout, smallmouth bass and walleye are the main game fish found in the river and it is not stocked. The river is large enough for small boats and canoes.
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.
