Just picked up my public access permit. All waters will be open for fishing 4/01, however there will be no boats allowed on Kensico and Croton for the time being. Biggest change is that you now must hang a DEP permit number hangar off your rearview mirror when parked while fishing. Also the new permit is good for 5 years, my lifetime permit is gone. I am so itching to get out there it's not funny! Tight lines guys...
