New Michael Ringer Print for Save The River’s Muskie Catch & Release Program

June 18th, 2015 | Posted by admin

Save The River is pleased to announce that this summer, participants in the Muskie Catch & Release program will receive a new Michael Ringer print-Sovereign. It is the fourth print dedicated to the Muskie Catch & Release program donated by renowned River artist Michael Ringer.

Sovereign


Since 1987 Save The River, SUNY-ESF, and local fishing guides have partnered to offer anglers a limited edition Michael Ringer print to anglers who catch-and-release a legal sized Muskie. To date, Save The River has awarded over 1,000 prints to St. Lawrence River fisherman who release these prized fish.  Every angler must submit a Muskie Release Affidavit to receive his or her print. The information from the affidavit is given to our partners at SUNY-ESF to aid their research on muskellunge.

This year NYS DEC increased the legal minimum size for Muskellunge to 54 inches. The previous legal size minimum was 48 inches.

In addition to Muskie, Save The River’s Catch & Release program focuses on smallmouth bass with a weekly contest were anyone can win prizes for submitting catch and release bass photos. For more up to date information about the St Lawrence River fishery and to enter the weekly photo contest like Save The River’s Catch & Release Program page on Facebook. For additional information, please contact Lindsey Leve, Outreach Coordinator at 686-2010 or lindsey@savetheriver.org.
