April Fools Day official start of trout fishing season

As a legal matter, Long Islanders can enjoy trout fishing year-round, but the harsh conditions of the past few months have not been friendly to recreational fishing, so there’s probably some pent-up demand ready for the official opening of trout season state-wide on April 1.

According to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey, in 2011, New York State was second in the nation in total spending on fishing-related items, and remains a clear leader in paid angler licenses, with nearly one million purchased.

Adelphi Panthers targeting 8th National title

The Adelphi University Lacrosse team is geared up for another championship run and aiming to claim its 8th NCAA title. After a heartbreaking lost to Le Moyne in last season’s semifinal, expectations for another deep run this year are very high.  

The Panthers are led by seventh year head coach Gordon Purdie, who led the team to a dominant 10-1 conference performance and a 14-3 overall record. The squad got off to a sizzling 6-0 start matching the best start in the program’s history. While the team was ranked seventh at the start of last year’s campaign, Adelphi played hard and continue to climb up the rankings, resulting in its first NE-10 Regular Season title since joining the conference in 2009-10.
