Low water levels in New Albion Lake

New Albion Lake, located in the Town of New Albion in Cattaraugus County, is seeing water levels drop to allow for routine maintenance on the lake’s spillway. According to the state Department of Environmental Conservation, the lake level will drop by as much as 2 to 4 feet. It is estimated that it will take at least one week to complete the work, which began on November 13. However, it may take some time for the lake to return to its previous levels depending on rainfall and water levels in the streams feeding the lake.

As water levels drop, sport fishing will suffer some impacts. DEC asks hunters to view a list of alternative hunting locations at https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/32658.html. Due to planned spillway maintenance, New Albion Lake was not on the Randolph Fish Hatchery’s fall trout stocking list. The lake will be stocked again in 2024.
