Check out the HARMFUL ALGAL BOOM that has been in the French's Bay area of Tully Lake. At the end of August it spread to the southeastern end of the lake as well. We tested three old lake level wells and they tested negative for this Cyanobacteria  Link.  


Kettle Lakes Bass Fishing Clinic was on 

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

Anglers from each our kettle lakes (Tully Lake, Song Lake, Crooked Lake and Little York Lake) listened and shared their fishing tips and  best strategies to land the big bass.  Our panel of local “experts”  discussed important techniques they have learned from fishing in central New York.   We learned about the secret sauce-garlic salt. Don't knock it until you've tried it!

Fresh Water Jellyfish ARE HERE! Evelyn Petit found a freshwater Jellyfish and it was filmed by Kevin Kabanuk. That brings the total of lakes and ponds in NY State to 31 that have them and they are harmless to humans.   They probably came in hitchhiking on ornamental flowers from China.
