South Otselic is a small, rural community situated along the Otselic River in Chenango County. Founded about 200 years ago, the hamlet has a proud history relating to sport fishing. Beginning in 1816, the Gladding Fishing Line Co. manufactured a variety of quality fishing lines for many years. A state stocked trout stream, the Otselic River, runs through the hamlet and has been a popular destination for generations of anglers. In 1932, the state of New York established the present fish hatchery.

The newly formed Otselic Valley Fishing & Heritage Association welcomes you to the second annual Fishing Heritage Day. The event strives to increase public awareness and appreciation of the area's historic role in the sport fishing industry, and to offer visitors an opportunity to learn basic fishing skills.

Please be considerate of private property, and exercise caution when crossing State Hwy 26 and local streets.
