ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York and federal conservation officials plan to brief the public about Lake Ontario and the state of its fisheries in a series of upcoming meetings in Niagara, Monroe and Oswego counties.

The lake, its bays and tributaries support populations of trout, salmon, bass, walleye, yellow perch and panfish, among others.

The Department of Environmental Conservation says they are thriving.

A survey estimated more than 2.6 million individual fishing days were spent on those waters in 2007.

The lake covers more than 2.7 million acres of New York.

Presentations are scheduled the evenings of March 3 in Lockport, March 8 in Pulaski and March 14 in Rochester.
