STATE WALLEYE RECORD BROKEN
Cattaraugus County Ice Angler Catches Record Fish
The start of 2009 marked the first record-breaking fish caught in New York State since 2007. Fishing with tip-ups, Thomas Reed of Kill Buck, NY pulled a 16 pound 9 ounce walleye through the ice on Mystic Lake on January 20th. Located in Cattaraugus County, Mystic Lake sits along Tunungwant Creek, a tributary of the Allegheny River.
"Reed’s walleye surpassed the now historic 1994 state record by 2 ounces, which was caught from the Allegheny Reservoir, also in Cattaraugus County," said New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Regional Fisheries Manager Paul McKeown. "Very few state records have been broken during ice fishing season."
Reed’s walleye was brought into New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC’s) office for inspection, where fisheries biologists estimated the fish to be over 20 years old.
