Over the past few years we have seen a decline in the population of panfish in Kinderhook Lake. This is partially due to the increased amount and massive sizes of Northern Pike found in the lake. The KLC Fish Committee believes it is time to remove some of these large fish to help preserve and balance other species within the lake. 

Ice conditions permitting, on Saturday, January 18, 2020, we will hold a Northern Pike Ice Fishing Contest free to the public between 7:00am and 2:00pm. From 2:00pm to 4:00pm we will be accepting Northern Pike for disposal in the large metal building at 9 Old West Shore Drive in Valatie. Only fish caught within the legal size and bag limit per person will be accepted. KLC merchandise prizes will be awarded to those individuals with the longest fish and most fish. Again, this contest is open to the public and no entry fee is required.

We will also have membership applications, member window placards, boat launch keys, trailer stickers, and merchandise available for sale.
