NY trout season starts soon; licenses sold online

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) There's still ice on many of upstate New York's streams and rivers, but trout fishing season is just around the corner.

April 1 is opening day for trout and salmon fishing. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says residents of the state can purchase and print a fishing license from their computers by visiting http://licensecenter.ny.gov. Licenses can also be purchased by phone at 866-933-2257. The annual fishing license fee is $25 for state residents, $4 less than last year.
