Great Sacandaga Lake hasn't received any stocked walleyes since 1973 but that all changed last Thursday, Oct. 25, when the GSLFF released 4,000 5-7 inchers in the lake. The fish were purchased from Hickling's Fish Farm in Edmeston, NY at a cost of $5,800, money raised through grants, donations, fishing contests, raffles and other sources.

An additional 2,000 walleyes of similar size were released that morning at the Northville Boat Launch on Route 30 and at Sinclair Heights. The new additions to the lake apparently like their new surroundings and scattered rapidly, hoping no doubt to meet up with some of their native-born brethren already in the lake.

The last time Great Sacandaga received any stocked walleyes was in 1973 when the Department of Environmental Conservation released a quantity of fingerlings in the lake. Back a dozen or so years ago the agency removed some walleyes for introduction into Lower Saranac Lake but hasn't replaced any since.
