The Sylvia Lake Association was formed in 1968, in part, to oppose ice fishing on Sylvia Lake. This position has never changed... should it change now? The DEC is proposing a number of changes to fishing regulations which would impact us. The Sylvia Lake Board would like your opinion.

We have set up an online opinion form for you to weigh in and add your voice to any statement given to the DEC about these changes. The deadline for accepting surveys is November 28, by 12:00 noon. The Association will be submitting a statement to the DEC. Should we support or oppose the new regulations?

Among the proposed changes:

  • increasing the minimum size for muskies, establishing a daily creel limit of five fish, modifying trout regulations for Star Lake and Trout Lake, and establishing a year-round trout season on Sylvia Lake.

  • Establishing an open year-round trout season for Sylvia Lake in St. Lawrence County, with a 12-inch minimum size limit and three fish daily creel limit, with ice fishing permitted;

Comments can be sent directly to the DEC through Dec. 1, 2014.
