We did have the annual meeting at the Greenwich Free Library with Jim Pinheiro, fisheries biologist of NY DEC.
He gave a presentation that covered all of his activities and also focused on the Batten Kill in particular. He is
based in Warrensburg, and has a huge territory to cover. He is involved with everything from permits related to dams to
restoration of native eastern brook trout populations in Adirondack lakes.
ANNUAL MEETING Thursday 11/12 @ 7pm
Jim Pinheiro of NY Department of Environmental Conservation
will discuss projects & activities,
including fisheries management for the Batten Kill
First photo shows Jim Pinheiro & Jason Smith of NY DEC noticing a couple of brown trout in the Batten Kill while visiting a proposed trout habitat restoration section downstream of Eagleville Bridge in New York this July.
I managed to catch this picture of an osprey chasing an eagle that had apparently stolen his fish.
The osprey was screaming in anger.
Not a great picture but I am lucky I got anything on the camera.
This was just downstream of the Rte 22 bridge over the Batten Kill in Salem, NY.
