This event was a huge success despite inclement weather, which did not stop the avid fishermen from attending, all to help save the dam at Lake Cadjaw. Thanks to the cold weather the prior two weeks, there was 7 solid inches of ice and the pouring rain did not stop everyone from fishing and just enjoying an overall good time. It was because of their eagerness to fish that it was decided to forego the rain date of February 8, which was posted on the Website. This event was the most successful of our four fundraisers conducted since August 2013 and everyone is looking forward to the next fishing party, which will be scheduled soon.

On behalf of the association, we would like to say thank you very much !
ATTENTION ALL HONESDALE RESIDENTS - THE DEP HAS NOTIFIED US THAT IF NECESSARY REPAIRS ARE NOT MADE TO THE DAM, THE DAM MAY BE
BREECHED AND THE LAKE WILL BE DRAINED AND BECOME WETLANDS. WE CANNOT LET THIS IMPORTANT PART OF
HONEDALE HISTORY BE TAKEN AWAY!
Lake Cadjaw, also once referred to as "Cadjaw Pond" is a 65 Acre Lake just outside of Honesdale, PA. The lake back to the 1800s when a dam was built and the water was stored and used to supply the Delaware & Hudson Canal. It was later used to supply water for Honesdale.
Today, the lake is a beautiful recreational body of water owned by the Lake Cadjaw Watershed Association and used by its residents for boating, fishing and swimming. About 35 years ago, the Army Corps of Engineers lowered the water level of the lake approximately 5 1/2 feet. In the void left behind grew a forest of cattails. The LCWA has made many attempts to have the lake restored to its original state.
The Dam that harnesses the lake is in jeopardy of being breeched by order of the Department of Environmetal Protection if it is not reinforced and brought up to their current safety specifications.
