Ron-Nev Anglers Symposium 2018

Our friends and colleagues with the Rondout-Neversink Stream Management Program will be holding their 5th Annual Angler’s Symposium at the Claryville Event Center at the Blue Hill Lodge located at 1471 Denning Road on Friday, November 9th from 1:00-4:00pm. This is a great program for anyone who is interested in the Catskill region fishery.

Headlining this year’s symposium will be historian Diane Galusha who will speak about Edwin Hewitt, an author and naturalist whose property along the Neversink River inspired him to write his Handbook of Stream Improvement and Secrets of Salmon.

Also presenting will be Shaun McAdams from Trout Unlimited who will describe his work with wild brook trout in New York and Pennsylvania. In addition, Carri Marschner and Charlotte Malmborg of Cornell University will speak about citizen science opportunities to help save hemlock trees. Hemlocks are vitally important riparian tree species that are under threat from climate change and invasive species like the hemlock woolly adelgid. There will also be a walking tour of a nearby streambank restoration project.
