Lake George Angler Diary Cooperator Summary (2011)
Lake George is a 28,160-acre body of water bordered by Warren, Washington and Essex counties in the eastern Adirondacks. It is a two-story lake which means that it contains both coldwater and warmwater game fish. A program designed to monitor the lake's coldwater salmonid fishery, through the help of volunteer angler cooperators, was begun in the early 1970's. These volunteers have maintained detailed diaries of their salmonid fishing trips and have gathered a large amount of angler catch data. Beginning in 2009, we asked warmwater anglers to record their catches in separate warmwater diaries. These data will be compiled separately and a report distributed to participants. This report summarizes Lake George landlocked salmon and lake trout angler diary data and landlocked salmon age and growth data collected during 2011.
