The KLC is once again pleased to announce that it has organized a NYS Boater Safety Course for this coming spring, sponsored by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and the New York State Park Police. It is designed as a comprehensive boating course, teaching the fundamentals of safe boating operation. It is an 8-hour class and anyone over the age of 10 can attend at no cost.

The course will be taught on Saturday, June 7th, at the KLIA Hall, from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Please bring a bag lunch as there will only be about 30 minutes for lunch.

If you are interested in attending, please call 518-784-3024. Pre-registration is required no later than June 6th. A minimum of 10 attendees are required or the class will be cancelled.

A copy of the latest edition of the “New York Safe Boating Textbook: A Course on the Safe Operation of Boats and Personal Watercraft” can be downloaded to your computer, phone, or tablet by going to http://nysparks.com/recreation/boating/education.aspx. Hard copy textbooks will be available at the class for those who would like one.

In light of last years legislation requiring all individuals born after May 1, 1996 to successfully complete the NYS Boater Safety Course, this course is critical for all 10-18 year olds this year. Last year’s course was attended by over 40 individuals, and we expect this year’s course will be equally well attended. Hope to see you there.

Construction for the latest dam repair started on December 3, 2013. The contractor installed a coffer steel dam and de-watered the area in front of the sluice gate. Upon inspection, it was learned that the gasket, which we assumed required replacement, was in fine condition. However, several of the surrounding wedges were missing, which was the root cause of the leaks around the gate. The wedges were replaced and the sluice gate now has a good seal. Although the final tally is not yet in, alternative methods of installing the coffer steel dam for dewatering and replacement of the wedges instead of the entire sluice gate gasket may have reduced the cost of Phase 1 work to less than half of the original estimate.

Once dry, the sluice pipe was inspected and it was determined that the pipe needed to be relined. The contractor is preparing an estimate to reline the sluice pipe. Depending on the estimated cost and funds available in the Dam Reserve Fund, it is hoped that work to reline the sluice pipe and repairs to the dam’s facade can be completed this coming spring. In the meantime, the water level has been returned to its normal winter level. However, the coffer steel dam remains in place, limiting full control of winter water levels.

As mentioned in the October KLC News, there is a potential for more hazardous conditions for people venturing out on the ice this winter. The limited control of the water level below the ice could cause thinner ice. If you are not sure, please stay off the ice.

Daniel Zielinski from DEC has prepared a brief summary of DEC’s Kinderhook Lake fish survey efforts over the past 13 years. DEC is planning on producing a fish management plan for Kinderhook Lake this winter. This will be a much more detailed report based on recent surveys and it will make recommendations for future management of the fish populations in the lake, particularly the game fish populations. A draft report is expected to be completed by the end of March 2014.

To assist in their efforts to complete the report, DEC is looking for anecdotal information specifically from anyone who has caught a tiger muskie in Kinderhook Lake. If you or someone you know has information on when, where, length and weight of tiger muskie catches, please email the information along with any photos of your catch directly to Dan Zielinski at djzielin@gw.dec.state.ny.us.

The Kinderhook Lake Corporation has become aware of the concerns for invasive aquatic species being found in ponds, lakes and rivers throughout the region, and several that are already present in Kinderhook Lake. Some species are so small, you may not see them or realize they are hitching a ride with you on your boat, trailer or fishing gear.

The Corporation is currently evaluating alternative methods to help stop the spread of invasive species entering Kinderhook Lake. Education appears to be the logical first step, along with following some general procedures to help protect our waters. To this end, the KLC has arranged for a presentation on invasive aquatic species by DEC Regional Fisheries Manager, Chris VanMaaren, at our Informational Meeting on June 29th, 10:00 AM at the KLIA Hall. All members, their families and friends are invited to attend. In addition, the link in the right-hand column will take you to a list of general procedures you can follow to help stop invasive aquatic hitchhikers.

Together we hope to make a difference.

Septic system effluent entering our lake is one of the highest contributors to weed growth and reduced water quality. Please protect our lake and your property values by having your septic tank cleaned this spring.
 
The Kinderhook Lake Corporation has arranged for pumping of septic tanks for a discounted rate of $245 (+tax) for KLC members. If interested, please leave your name, lake address and contact phone number with Rick Theriault at 518-573-5088 or ric1129@yahoo.com by May 31st. 

You will be contacted by Fix Family Enterprises to schedule your pump-out during the month of June.
 
Pumping will be scheduled weekdays only and tank access covers must be exposed and accessible.
A minimum of 20 septic tanks must be pumped to receive the discounted price.
This service is provided by Fix Family Enterprises, Ltd. of Valatie, NY, and is not a service provided by the KLC.

On Saturday morning, April 13th, volunteers gathered for several hours to do a large-scale clean up of the Rt. 28 launch site. Volunteers continued the removal of overgrown brush, vines and trash from Rt. 28 all the way to the dam that was started weeks earlier by Steve Sigler and Lisa Benfield. Bernie Kelleher operated the backhoe realigning boulders to expand the parking area and pile brush to be removed by the Town. The backhoe was even used to straighten the bent frame of the cutter boat trailer. Mike Francour and family gathered construction debris and transported it to the county waste station. Signs were reattached to the gate, the new lock was installed on the gate and the KLC boats were launched.

The KLC wishes to thank the following volunteers for taking time on a Saturday morning to help make the launch a place we can all be proud of: (in alphabetical order) Lisa Benfield, Ken Bosen, Russ Camadine, Bill and Teri Cleary, Mike Franceour and family, Bernie Kelleher, Tim Kelly, Dan and Robin Langer, Drew Nelson and family, Steve Sigler, Fran Sindlinger (thanks for the coffee and donuts), Rick Thieriault, Jack “the Mayor” Warner, Mike and Jill Weldon, Paul WInslow, (apologies if we forgot anyone). Additional photos are posted on the GALLERY page of our website.

black crappie recordCongratulations to Rick Otty from Hudson who, on Monday January 28th, managed to catch the state record Black Crappie in Kinderhook Lake. The fish measured 18.5″ long, 16.5″ girth and weighed 3 lbs-13 oz. This broke the previous state record black crappie of 17.75″ and 3 lb-12 oz caught in Duck Lake, Cayuga Co., from way back in 1998. 

You may have already seen the news in the Register Star:

“The Columbia County Board of Supervisors has made available the CodeRED Emergency Notification System; a high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. While the primary purpose of this system is to warn residents of immediate dangers and threats to life and property, it will also be used to broadcast other informational bulletins such as boil water advisories, missing children, large scale traffic-flow problems, severe weather warnings and more. …… The new system is in response to the fire at the TCI of New York recycling facility in Ghent earlier this month.”

The CodeRED system will automatically call all land line phones. If you would like the notification to come to your cell phone, you will need to sign up at CodeRED.
