The Warren County Conservation Council (WCCC) is comprised of a group
of sportsmen and women who belong to a varied degree of sporting and
conservation clubs in our county. We meet each month to discuss
issues that both nurture and challenge our outdoor interests and
natural resources, primarily fish and wildlife and their
habitat. The county council institution is merely one of several
tiers in which sportsmen are represented in New York State. Just
as local clubs belong to our organization, we in turn, belong to the
Adirondack Conservation Council as well as the New York Conservation
Council and the Conservation Alliance of New York.
Through the process of discussion we have made some accomplishments in
our history. In 2006 we met with the Town of Queensbury
Recreation Department and were able to convince them to open their
municipal car-top boat access on Glen Lake for ice fishing access (an
other activities) during the winter. Most recently, through our
discussions with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC),
we campaigned for the future privilege to have a year-round season on
Glen Lake for rainbow trout. That became a
reality in October of 2010. Each year we participate in
National Hunting and Fishing Day in hopes of educating and inspiring
future sportsmen in our community.
We will continue to do our best to represent sportsmen at all levels. We hope you will join us.
May 1, 2013 -The
Wednesday, May 1 meeting will be held at the DEC Regional Office in
Warrensburg. The meeting will be at the regular time—7:00
PM. Thanks to DEC for use of the facilities.
Things to Know
•The Warren County Conservation Council has been very active in
the battle against invasive species, especially in Lake George, while
trying to preserve anglers rights. A special committee of council
members has presented a proposal to the Lake George Park Commission and
the Warren County Board of Supervisors that suggests Computer Based
Training (CPT) and testing for transient boaters (including anglers)
who use Lake George public boat launches as well as those throughout
the state. Click here to read a copy of the proposal
drafted by Jack
Currie. Please note: the Council is not against boat washing stations
and inspections but we would like to keep the launches open to anglers
at early and later hours in the day.
