Preview:

SHANDAKEN >> The state Department of Environmental Conservation has asked anglers not to fish in the Upper Esopus Creek in Ulster County due to muddy water and the creek’s low level, and the agency says a formal ban is forthcoming.

The affected area is “from Shandaken Portal to Ashokan Reservoir” because “low, muddy water may affect trout spawning,” the department tweeted and said on its website.

The muddy water has been entering the creek from the New York City-owned Schoharie Reservoir by way of the portal.

The formal ban is expcted within a few days, and there was no immediate word on whether it might be lifted before the fishing season ends Nov. 30.
