Please Note:

  • Catch and release fishing only. All NY State fishing rules and regulations apply at all times.


  • No fishing is permitted in the swimming area or the blue boat launch Area.


  • A DEC issued freshwater fishing license is required for anyone aged 16 and older. For NYS fishing license information, visit the DEC website at  A one-day fishing license is available for purchase online for $5.


  • Lead-free fishing sinkers are required for ½ ounce or less weights. Lost or discarded lead weights dissolve slowly over time. Exposure to low amounts of lead is toxic to both humans and wildlife.


  • Barbless hooks are required. Barbless hooks are easier to remove, causing fewer fish injuries.  You can also use pliers to bend barbed hooks.  See our staff for assistance.


  • Non-stainless-steel hooks are recommended. If lost or swallowed by a fish, non-stainless-steel hooks will rust, dissolve, and disappear quicker than stainless steel hooks.


  • Please carry out all trash and collect any that you see. Keep our camp clean!


  • Alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs of any kind are never permitted on camp property. Smoking is permitted in designated areas only.


  • No watercraft of any kind is permitted on the lake.


The event is finished.
