Fishing on Lochmeade Lake
Each summer, the Lochmeade community has trouble with the public fishing on Lochmeade lake. When the Lochmeade Homeowners’ Association was started, rules were put in place regarding fishing on the lake.
Only Lochmeade homeowners and their in house guests may fish on the lake and fishing badges must be displayed while fishing.
Displaying your fishing badge will help to identify you as a resident. Police may be called about trespassing if some of the homeowners don’t recognize you as being a resident. Homeowners may not give relatives or friends permission to fish on the lake without the homeowner being present.
If every resident told their relatives or friends, who aren’t living here or visiting overnight, that they may come and fish, then we would have numerous people on our private lake. Before you know it, we would have dozens of people in our backyards that we don’t even know and there are safety and privacy issues if this were to happen. Also, there are regulations as to what type of fish and what size fish may be taken from the lake. Part of the homeowners’ association dues that we pay goes to the upkeep of the lake. We pay a pond management agency to take care of the lake for us.
We are members of a community that is governed by a covenant that we all agreed to when we built or purchased our homes in Lochmeade. We all must help enforce our covenant and the rules. Please help by doing your part to keep our community safe and to protect our privacy.
Please attend the annual HOA meetings to hear the business and concerns of your homeowners’ association. We need to work together as a team to protect our homes and neighborhood.
