Does anyone know if the 1000 ft from shore no wake zone is still in effect ? People are planing around Sandy Pond close to shore as if it isn't. Cant find any info online.

From the Cayuga County Sheriff regarding Fair Haven (Little Sodus)

** Continued NO WAKE ZONE Lake Ontario **

An Emergency Order issued by Cayuga County Legislative Chair Tucker Whitman remains in effect for the shoreline of Lake Ontario and Little Sodus Bay implementing a No Wake Zone within 500 feet of shore. An Executive Order issued by the Governor earlier this year extending the wake zone expired on July 20th per the state and was not extended.

The current No Wake Zone does not extend beyond 500 feet at this time. We hope this clears up recent confusion regarding this issue.

    • No wake

      On my way back in the state trooper boat at the Sandy launch pulled me over .    He  safety checked me and said he wanted to make sure I was not making a wake within 1000 ft of shore and to please help get the word out because they are very serious about this and WILL write tickets.    They were nice guys .     So be aware .

    • 5 mph within 1000 ft?

      Could not find anything saying that the 5 mph within 1000 ft was lifted? Anyone know?   Going to Wellsley island later this week and if I have to stay below 5 mph within 1000 ft of shore it will take a long time to get anywhere.   TIA.
