Kurt Ladu has reported that the 2008 lake drawdown was completed just before the end of November. We will hold the lake at its current level until mid-January to allow for the installation of a weed control measure we are testing in West Bay Cove. In mid-January, we will close the gate and bring the lake up slowly to its proper winter level.
During this time and throughout the entire winter please do not rely on the ice to be safe. We also want to remind all members that ice fishing is not allowed on Galway Lake. As noted on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s website Galway Lake is a private lake and the GLCA does not allow ice fishing.
