Monthly meetings are held either online or in-person every first Monday of the month @7pm.

To be a member would mean lending your talents, skills, knowledge and abilities to help further our mission. This could include providing input while attending monthly meetings, helping with the planning and physical coordination of the annual F&HD and other special programs, and representing the Association at neighboring events, all with the overarching goal of enhancing the Valley's quality of life for present and future generations. All members are invited to attend the monthly meetings.

In Memoriam of Gary Sweet

1949 to 2021

The Otselic Valley Fishing & Heritage Association (OVF&HA) lost one of its founding members last August. Gary Sweet was an avid fly fisherman and past president of the Chenango County chapter of Trout Unlimited. He was a Board member of the Otselic Valley Fishing & Heritage Association and served as its Vice President for several years. He participated in the annual Fishing & Heritage Day, where he taught and demonstrated fly tying and fly casting. Gary also shared those fly fishing skills during several Boy Scout jamborees and events. He was a member of the Chenango County Grange and was NYS’s coordinator of the fish stocking program for Chenango County. The members of the OVF&HA are grateful for his contributions to the organization, his willingness to do whatever was necessary and with his own unique sense of humor.
