2023 Seneca Lake Trout Study Needs Volunteers

05/08/2023 2:00 PM | Kaitlin Fello

The Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association is partnering once again with the Finger Lakes Institute and SUNY ESF researchers during the National Lake Trout Derby on Seneca Lake this year. The purpose of this collaboration is to conduct a study to better understand the health of the fishery in Seneca Lake. The Lake Trout Derby will begin on Saturday, May 27th at 6:30am and end Monday, May 29th around 12:00pm, with awards starting at 3:00pm at Stivers Marina!

We need approximately 15 additional volunteers this year to help at weigh-in stations and at the research station to collect fish samples (stomach, flesh, scales). We are asking for volunteers to serve 4 - hour shifts at either Watkins Glen Clute Park or Geneva's Stivers Marina.


The Finger Lakes Institute, SUNY ESF, Seneca Pure Waters, and the Lake Trout Derby Board thank you for your support in learning more about the health of our lake by volunteering for this effort!

Please reach out to with any questions.
