BILL NUMBER:S2462B

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to authorizing
angling by a single individual with up to three lines in freshwater; and
providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE:
This legislation would authorize an individual to angle for fish with
up to 3 lines in freshwater.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends section 11-0103 of the Environmental Law to change the number
of lines one person may operate from not more than three, with or
without rod in freshwater.

This act shall expire and be deemed repealed December 31, 2013.

JUSTIFICATION:
This new 3-rod rule is designed to favorably impact a fisherman's
experience by increasing his probability of catching a fish. Catching a
fish enhances angler satisfaction more than any other factor and is
the prime determinant in deciding whether or not to make return
visits to the fisheries of New York.

Return visits to the fishery are a boon to the local economies. Return
trips mean more money spent locally for fuel, food, lodging,
launches, parking, and rentals.

The 3-rod rule will not guarantee that people catch more fish; rather
it will give them the potential to locate the fish a little easier.
The small crewed boats, the 'weekend warrior', the recreationalist,
the vacationer, the retired couple who have saved up for a boat and
now have the time and health to use it will all benefit from this.

It does not mean they must use 3 rods, it will mean they can use 3
rods per person, whether they are operated from land or from a boat,
if they so choose. New Jersey and Michigan both have a 3-rod rule, to
which they have continued to see a favorable impact to their
recreational fisherman.

In addition, the 3-rod rule will not exploit the fishery since
exploitation is constrained by creel limits that would still be in
effect.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: Same as S5453.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
