Senator Bill Larkin (R-C, Cornwall-on-Hudson) joined with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in announcing the week of June 2-10, 2012 as National Fishing and Boating Week.
“I encourage everyone to take advantage of all the lakes and rivers that New York has to offer,” said Senator Larkin. “With the summer fast approaching, boating and fishing are a few of the many activities that the whole family can enjoy together.”
