Abstract

In 2003 the New York City Department of Environmental Protection Bureau of Water Supply undertook a five-year initiative to improve fishing by boat on its Water Supply reservoirs and controlled lakes in upstate New York. The project includes cleanup of administrative procedures and boat fishing areas on reservoir shores; improving two-way communication with anglers; inventorying, assessing and improving boat storage areas; and creating a long-term management plan for deep water fi shing access. A focal point of the project is the development of Boat Area Rapid Assessment (BARA), an evaluation tool for establishing boat storage area carrying capacities.
