Conservation officer hooks Madison County angler
A fisherman in Madison County is on the line for a pair of tickets stemming from an incident in Oneida on June 8, state officials said.
On June 8, Environmental Conservation Officer Harry Chase responded to a complaint by a landowner in the city of Oneida requesting that a fisherman be arrested for trespassing after he was found fishing in the creek behind the caller’s house earlier in the day.
The property is legally posted, and for the past 20 years fishermen have left the area when asked, state officials reported. This time, the fisherman became belligerent, used profanity, and refused to leave, officials added.
Oneida City Police initially responded, identified the subject, and contacted the state environmental conservation officer who came and issued the fisherman two tickets.
In addition to the trespassing charge, Chase discovered the subject had not renewed his fishing license since 2015.
