Please read the following carefully as there are important changes outlined below.

  This year crappie fishing and possession of crappies will be closed again at the lake.  This is to allow the population of crappies in the lake to re-establish itself.

There will be (2) trout rodeos this year.  One will be held on March 24 and another will be held on April 7.

There will be (2) trout stockings this year.   One will be on Monday, March 19 and the other will be on Monday April 2 and each will be at approximately 9:00 am. 

Each of the rodeos will be from 7:00 am til 1:00 pm. 

Only children 12 years and under will fish at each rodeo from 7:00 til 8:00 am. 

Everyone else will fish from 8:00 am til 1:00 pm.

 

The lake will be closed as follows.  Monday March 19 through April 7 except for the hours of the rodeos. 

After the April 7 rodeo the lake will be open to those persons only possessing a trout card until Saturday, April 14 at daylight, which time all members can fish.    Cost of trout card is $20.00 for person 13 yrs and older.  This is good for both rodeos.   Children 6 to 12 years of age, the cost for a card is $5.00.  This is good for both rodeos.  Children 5 years and under is free.

 

  There will be NO catfish Bazaar again this year due to poor attendance in the past couple years.  There will still be a catfish stocking which will be announced in a future newsletter.

Only (1) rod allowed during the rodeos.

During the rodeos there will be food for sale, both breakfast and lunch.

 

 

No fishing anytime in the posted area around the lights/aerators.  Also please have young children refrain from throwing rocks/stones into the lake.  Please obey all signs and rules while fishing and be considerate of others along the lake bank. Also please note that any fish you are taking from the lake for consumption will need to have a permit showing that the fish was taken from the Greencastle Sportsman Lake.  Permits will be available at boxes located at the large information sign at the bottom of the hill and at the Members Pavilion. 

This is a regulation/requirement of the Pennsylvania Fish Commission, so keep in mind that this simple card can prevent a $fine$ if you would be stopped by a Waterways Conservation Officer once you leave the Club property.
