Lake History

The Great Sacandaga Lake is a large reservoir located in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State. The lake was created in the early 20th century as part of a major hydroelectric project that aimed to provide electricity to the then rapidly growing city of Albany, NY.

The construction of the Great Sacandaga Lake began in 1927, when the Sacandaga River was dammed at Conklingville, NY. The dam created a vast reservoir that covered an area of over 29,000 acres and had a maximum depth of 70 feet. Over the next several years, the lake slowly filled with water, and by 1930, was at full capacity.

The Great Sacandaga Lake

The creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake required the relocation of over 1,000 families and the flooding of several small towns and villages, including the communities of Cranberry Creek, Conklingville, and Sacandaga Park. The construction of the dam and the reservoir was also a major engineering feat, requiring the excavation of over 2 million cubic yards of earth and the installation of a massive concrete spillway.

The Great Sacandaga Lake is now a popular recreational destination, attracting thousands of visitors each year. The lake is home to a variety of fish species, including trout, bass, and walleye, and is popular for boating, fishing, and swimming. The surrounding Adirondack Mountains also offer numerous hiking trails and camping opportunities.

Despite its popularity as being recreational, the creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake remains controversial due to the displacement of local residents and the loss of historic communities. However, the lake continues to be an important source of hydroelectric power and serves as an important resource for the surrounding region.

Fishing is quite active on the Great Sacandaga Lake, home to a variety of fish species, including trout, bass, walleye, pike, and perch.

Anglers can fish from shore or from boats, and there are several boat launches located around the lake, and our boat slips. The lake also offers opportunities for ice fishing during the winter months.

Fishing regulations on the Great Sacandaga Lake are governed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), which sets limits on the size and number of fish that can be caught. You are required to obtain a fishing license before fishing on the lake, and may also need to obtain special permits for certain types of fishing, such as for using nets or traps.

The DEC offers educational programs and events throughout the year to help anglers learn more about the fish species in the lake and how to fish responsibly. These programs may include workshops on topics like fish identification, fishing techniques, and conservation practices.

It’s important for fishermen to practice catch-and-release fishing whenever possible to help maintain healthy fish populations in the lake. Anglers should also follow all fishing regulations and guidelines to help protect the lake’s ecosystem and ensure that fishing remains a sustainable activity for years to come on the Great Sacandaga Lake.
