Limerick Lake - Spring 2017 News

NEWS UPDATE: June 25, 2017


Pretty typical opening day on Saturday. Some sunshine, some clouds, an afternoon thunderstorm threatened, but passed by to the north.  Lots of 3 pound bass caught.  A few in the 4 pound range.  Sunday started out mostly overcast with a glass calm lake and quite chilly for this time of year.  Early morning fishermen found great action with the bass quite active.  Another of those toss the coin forecasts for the rest of the day.  Whatever happens, the forecast was right, or was it wrong?  Cooler than normal temps seem to linger for at least another week.
   
Ed and Kyle were up early Saturday (4AM) and conducting some invasive species research at the launch ramp on behalf of the LWRA.  They were chatting with in-bound fishermen to ask what they currently do with their boats regarding invasive species, and more importantly, what they would be willing to do.  

The Berkeley B1 tournament series will be held on the Bay of Quinte this coming weekend, June 30, July 1.  It is based out of the Herkimer Street launch ramp.  This is a $100,000 tournament and is part of a 3 event series.  

Jim Woods (Woodhaven Campground and Marina) daughter Amber has passed along info that there will be a celebration of Jims life on July 1st at 3PM at Woodhaven Campground on St. Ola Lake.  Please RSVP to Amber at: woodamber@hotmail.com if you plan to attend. 

The cottagers association (LWRA) is having a pancake breakfast here at the lodge on the morning of July 2 at 8:30AM.  It is $6.00.  It will be followed by the AGM at 10:30AM. The Reeve, Sharon, and Fire Chief, Jason, are expected to attend the AGM to take your questions.

We are in normal summer time fire conditions.  That means campfires specifically for cooking anytime, other burning and campfires for smores 7PM to 7AM. 

Another Internet install to do on Monday.  They have been going well with no need to climb tall trees or put holes in cottage roofs.  Always nice when there is a good signal in a convenient place.  To inquire about service please send us a message and we will see if it is available at your location.  For seasonal residents the service is a flat $300 per year. (plus $200 installation the first year) Speeds have been creeping up for everyone as more advanced behind the scenes equipment gets installed.
