Spring Lake Clean Up

Due to covid -19 restrictions a general work party will not be held this spring but the cleanup is needed.  The following list of items need to be done and we are asking for volunteers to tack on some time at the start or end of a fishing trip or to make a specific trip to get the completed.  Take some tools (rakes, shears, lawnmower, axes/saw) and garbage bags so we ensure the fire safety of the site and clean it up as a good neighbour.  We CAN NOT burn so all trash and bagged material will need to be removed when you leave

Send me an email or phone before you plan on going out and after you return so I can keep the list current.  

At the building site:

  • Pick up branches near the structure and stack on the woodpile near the trees
  • Bag and remove any litter or garbage
  • Rake and bag the leaves in and around the building
  • Clean the outhouse at the back of the building.  Toilet paper should be bagged to keep dry and club will re-imburse the cost 
  • Cut the lawn from building out to posts marking parking area.  It can be mulched

At the lake side:

  • Trim bushes along walk way, bulletin board and boat racks
  • Pickup any garbage; bag and remove
  • Cut grass around boats that are on the racks and bulletin board

If you see other things that need to be done let me know

Thanks for your help

For all new members:

  • Please park in designated parking area up by the shelter. 
  • Also please try and load boats on trailers at the launch, one lot over from the dock.
  • We would like to keep the dock area free from ruts.
  • We are also working on filling the existing ruts with crush rock.

Spring Update

Well Spring has begun and we are currently experiencing some warmer temperatures. I hope you have been getting out on the ice for some fishing or are busy tying flies and maintaining fishing gear for the upcoming fly fishing season.

I have had a few reports that the fishing at Spring Lake has been fairly slow lately which is typical for mid winter it seems. If you have had some success please let us know about it and if you’re on the lake please try to see that all 4 aerators are operational. 

We have decide to restrict access to the lake by vehicle until the frost comes out of the ground and begins to dry up a little, so we do not cause ruts and damage to the property. We have installed a new lock that will not open with existing keys, for the time being. Once the property dries up we will implement the new combination lock.
for those of you who have not renewed your membership, will need to do so.
Then we will email the new combination lock #.
See you all soon out at the lake.
