Niagara Gazette

Lake Placid, Empire State Shines for Outdoor Writers


Niagara Gazette — In defense of the fishermen, though, this is the salmon run – the fall return of the king – and it seems like no one cares what happens to them and their pastime. One has to remember that the fishing platform would not be there if it wasn’t for NYPA. On the other hand, what do you think the lower river would be like if the Niagara Power Project wasn’t there? In looking at all of the natural resource development and restoration going on above Niagara Falls, it’s time that the lower river fishermen get their fair share of what’s coming to them. Yes, they deserve more respect.
