MASSENA -- The first of a series of videos promoting fishing in northern New York was filmed last week in Massena.

WPBS-DT, Watertown, is producing the videos in collaboration with the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, which is spearheading the regional project to increase awareness of fishing opportunities across the top of the state.

The promotional pieces are expected to air on PBS stations and online in 2017, and will direct viewers to the regional fishing website GoFishNY.com.
