Letter From The President

The 2020 boating program has been postponed until further notice.



Happy 2020! Fishing season is just around the corner, and we have a feeling with this mild winter, the fish will be even fatter than usual this spring. I’m pretty sure there are a few Shenipsit Lake fisherman that know exactly where the fish will be located early season! All indicators are pointing to a fantastic year. Are you excited yet?

Please note: The boat registration process is same as previous years. Below you will find the corresponding dates so please mark your calendar so you don’t miss out.

Weather permitting; boat slips will be issued on Saturday April the 4th at 7:00am. Snow date will be Sunday the 5th at 7:00am. Please do NOT bring your boats!

We will convene at the Vernon commuter parking lot off of Reservoir Road, directly off of route 84, exit 67. We ask that all participants enter the commuter parking area. There will a sign at the entrance of the commuter lot and orange cones indicating where to park. We will have staff on hand to answer any questions.

Please note: slips are issued on a first come, first served basis – slots are limited!

After signing in everyone is invited back to the boathouse for coffee and doughnuts for our annual “clean-up”. If you haven’t participated before, it’s a great time spent with other Shenipsit Lake boaters who take an hour or so of their time to chat and help clean up the surrounding grounds. It’s a nice way to gear up for opening day and also tell a few fish stories!

Registered boaters will be able check their boats in at the boathouse starting Monday, April 6th. A monitor will be at the boathouse from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm to collect the registration forms. There is a two-day quarantine period, so if you drop your boat off after Wednesday the 8th, you will not be able to fish on opening day. Boats must be dropped off the week of April 6th- April 10th.

Thank you and I wish you tight lines in 2020!

Shawn LaForest, SLA President
