The Great Sacandaga Lake Fisheries Federation Is Now On FACEBOOK - Like Us Today
The Great Sacandaga Lake Fisheries Federation (GSLFF) was formed in February 1984 after several groups noted the need for one group to oversee the promotion and enhancement of the fishery of the Great Sacandaga Lake. Since this time, the group has collectively worked in many ways to enhance the fishery of one of the finest fisheries in New York State. In 1996, upon assuming a trust fund from the Red Bunch Fish & Game Club, the GSLFF incorporated as a federally recognized 501(c)(4) not for profit corporation.

The GSLFF celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014 and is looking forward to continued building of our membership while we keep focused on the enhancement of the lakes fishery. Don't be fooled by our name, the GSLFF's objective reaches much further than just the lakes fishery. We are very involved in many of the issues that face the lake in turn its fishery. We committed over 10 years in participating in and developing the Upper Hudson/Sacandaga Agreement of Settlement of which we are a signateur, member of the Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council and participated in the Hudson River Black River Regulating District Steering Committee. These are just some of our other commitments. Please support us in keeping a watchful eye on the lake and its fishery.

Again, and quite regrettably, I must bring you news of great loss to our organization. For the second year in a row, not only our group but our community has suffered a blow with the passing of our longtime secretary, once Chairman and cherished friend Jack Smith on February 4th. For many years Jack has given so much of himself to the group and the lake, it will be impossible to fill his shoes without several good people stepping up and giving just a little. From many meetings in Syracuse negotiating the relicensing of the E.J. West hydroelectric facility at the Conklingville dam to gathering raffle prizes, distributing fishing contest flyers as well as fielding and making countless phone calls on our behalf he would hope for those who love to fish our lake to help pick up where he left off. For those of you that knew Jack, you realize that I could write an entire newsletter about the things that he has done for our organization and the fishery of the Great Sacandaga Lake. As he continues his mission, we must carry on in knowing that his presence inspires us to continue our work to enhance this fishery we have all invested so much in.
Below are thoughts that I often write somewhere in the newsletter. As you have seen it is more evident and needed now than ever.Looking back to a newsletter almost 20 years ago, I will let Jacks words echo;
“The Fisheries Federation is a NOT-FOR-PROFITCORPORATION. All our members are volunteersand the money raised from our memberships,fishing contests and raffles go to purchase troutfor our Spring stocking. We extend an invitationto you, your relatives, friends and associates to jointhe Fisheries Federation and help us make the GreatSacandaga Lake the best fishing and recreation area inNew York State. Our monthly meetingsare held on the3rd Tuesday of each month at the Fish House Fish andGame Club at 7:00 P.M. The Game Club is located ofFayville Road in Providence. If you have any questionsabout the location feel free to contact one of the officers.We hope that you will attend and offer ideas that couldhelp us help you.”Jack Smith Chairman January 1998
