Keuka Lake is the central lake of the Finger Lakes which are located in Western New York.

Founded in 1956, the Keuka Lake Association, with over 1600 members, provides a unified voice for those who love Keuka Lake.

Our mission is to preserve and protect Keuka Lake and its natural beauty for future generations.

Keuka is a most special Finger Lake because of the unusual 'Y' shape the lake possesses. Keuka Lake's Bluff Point forms the peninsula in the lake giving it this unique shape.

Please join the Keuka Lake Association and help us protect the beauty of Keuka Lake.

2021 Bass Seasoning Opening

Large mouth and small mouth bass are NY's top sportfish and for good reason - you can find them across the state, they are relatively easy to catch, and they are a ton of fun to land when you hook into one! Not to mention, several waters in the state are home to trophy-size fish, drawing anglers from across the country seeking out the catch of a lifetime.
Fishing Regulations

FYI- Largemouth and smallmouth bass are referred collectively as "black bass" in the NYS Fishing Regulations Guide.

Black Bass Statewide Fishing Regulations*

3rd Saturday in June - November 30, 12" Minimum Length, Daily Limit of five

December 1 - Friday preceding the 3rd Saturday in June, catch and release only, artificial lures only

* If the water you plan on fishing doesn't have a special regulation for black bass (see Special Regulations section of the Fishing Regulations Guide) the statewide fishing regulation applies.

Note: Some counties in NYS do not have a catch and release season for bass. Be sure to check the regulations before you head out.

HAB Info and Reporting

The KLA would like to recommend three “starter” websites that you can go to and get clear, relevant, and up-to-date information about HABs. The first 2 sites are from the NY Department of the Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the third is from the NYS Department of Health (DOH).

Please use these sites as your first stop:
1. Good overview and up-to-date info on HABs and actions: 

2. A one-page brochure with quick info and pics:

3. A one-page brochure from DOH with quick info and pics:

Note: The first website listed has a link to report the possible HAB to the DEC under "Report It!”. You can fill out a form and email it and post a picture to the DEC. The DEC then notifies our KLA CSLAP representative, Maria Hudson, to take a sample which provides results in a few days.
