Title

The Pickerel (Lucius reticulatus. Le Sueur) from the Upper Hudson River

Description

Illustration is one of several intended to clarify for fishermen the difference between pike, pickerel, pike-perch, and muscalonge. From a contemporary perspective, however, what's striking is the serenity with which species were cultured and introduced into new habitats. We learn that the state hatches 3 million muscalonge annually in Chautauqua Lake, and that the pickerel depicted here was introduced into the Upper Hudson river in 1885.
