June 2010 -
Since 1992 we have periodically stocked the lake with sterile carp in order to control the weeds and algae in the lake and they do a great job. They enter the lake at about 6 to 8" in length and GROW! In 1992 40 were purchased and put in, in 2002 another 40, and this year we had 25 put in.
It is necessary to get a permit from the DEC to buy these fish and they can only be put into bodies of water that have no way of escape so that the fish can't get out to eat what they are not supposed to.
The fish are not cheap! So - cabin guests if you do catch one - please release!!
Serge is supervising. John is putting an overly anxious fish back in the bucket so that it can be properly put in the lake!
