Opening day for trout and salmon fishing is Monday with high, cold water and icy banks and streambeds anticipated, which could make for dangerous early-season angling, the state Department of Environmental Conservation said in a release.

DEC plans to stock more than 2.1 million brook, brown and rainbow trout large enough to catch in 307 lakes and ponds and roughly 3,000 miles of streams across the state. Spring stockings will include 1.51 million brown trout, 432,000 rainbow trout and 158,000 brook trout. Approximately 97,000 two-year-old brown trout 12 to 15 inches long also will be stocked in lakes and streams across the state.
