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.

We have accomplished so much to restore trout habitat and improve river dynamics in the Batten Kill in both New York and Vermont.
We need your help to continue this work.
