Letter From The President

It’s that time of year again - Welcome to the 2019 fishing season! Hopefully receiving this annual letter gets you psyched for the warm weather, the sun, the peace and quiet of Shenipsit Lake; and of course, the fish. It’s going to be another great year on our favorite lake. Now for the details...

Weather permitting; boat slips will be issued on Saturday April the 6th at 7:00am. Snow date will be Sunday the 7th 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 8th. 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 10th, you will not be able to fish on opening day.

Thank you and I wish you tight lines in 2019!

Shawn LaForest, SLA President
