Default Private lake memberships available (special pricing for a limited time)

I know this is not for everyone and please letís keep this civil.
The lake that where I am currently a member, is accepting applications for new members this year.

The lake is a little over 200 surface acres and about 45 feet deep at it deepest point when full. It is located located at 59th Street and Hygiene road between Longmont and Lyons.
There is easy access from Hwy 36 and Hwy 66.Itís called Foothills Fish and Game Club and has been around since the 1940ís.

It offers Fishing for Trout, Bass, Walleye, Crappie, Wiper, Perch, catfish and bluegill.

It is wake-less boating only. It does have a cement ramp and a boat dock.
There are covered picnic tables on concrete pads and open camping along the shoreline in both tents and RVís. There are no hookups.

Waterfowl hunting is allowed from your blind. ( No other type of hunting or shooting is permitted.)

The price for new members this year includes an initiation fee so the total is 1155.00
Next years dues will be in the 800.00 range for returning members.

EDIT. The board met last night and we decided to offer a special for new members!!! We are waving the initiation fee for 2009 for any new member that signs up before APRIL 15th!!!!) New price for new members is 770.00!!!!
Folks this is the time to get into a lake that will be nothing short of phenomenal very soon. We are running a special so we can get the monies allocated to be able to order fish for the stocking program we are planning. The fee to join this lake is now 770.00 exactly what existing members are paying !!! If you have been looking at a private lake membership, this simply can't be beat both in price and quality.

We met with the fish biologist that we have and plan on stocking plenty of forage, some brooders of walleye, large and small mouth bass. Catchable trout. We are also planning on stocking brooder perch and crappie as well as fingerling size of each. Catfish will also get some love and be stocked. We will get a good solid base this year and allow for 3 year classes of fish in the lake by this time next year, Then, we are off my friends!!! We are expecting to fill the membership and will start a waiting list which will remain in place for a very long time if history is any indication. so get in now while you can.

The reason we have openings this year is because the ditch company that controls the water in the lake, drained it to fix the outlet pipe leak. This fix is supposed to be completed soon and water will start to be let in. We have a fish Biologist as a member of the lake with access to local cold water fish and he has outlined a restocking plan for the next couple of years which should allow this to be a fantastic place to fish rather quickly.
As soon as we start getting water, we will be stocking catchable trout and shad. To allow for immediate fishing opportunities, then depending on the membership number (funding) we will start stocking the other species both in catchable and fry sizes.

During the draining, the membership has taken the opportunity to place and create structure in key areas which will just increase the speed at which it can become a great fishery again. Now is a great time to get the coordinates of the structure on a GPS

So, If you like a good place to camp that is close to home, friendly and courteous fisherman and families, and a great views in a relaxing environment this is your golden opportunity to join a lake that will once again become a great fishery and reach itís membership quota very rapidly.

Email me at [email protected] with any questions etc. I can meet you out thee and show you around as well if youíre interested.
Thanks,

Brett

Hi, the fire didn't get close at all. I'm not much of a goose or duck hunter but when I have gone out there, I typically get shots. As you can see from the one aerial view, there is alot of water in the immediate vicinity. There is also a cement plant just to the north west of the lake that has warmer water all year long and the ducks and geese flock to that water. Typically the lake will see some flyover's from that. so in a nutshell, is it premier, no, Will you get some ducks and geese and have a good and uncrowded time, YES!!


edited to add aerial view into original post. My bad

Mogul buster.

The price for new members this year includes an initiation fee so the total is 1150.00
Next years dues will be in the 800.00 range for returning members.


It's like 15 mins from my house and I like to camp so the cost justification for camping alone makes it worthwhile if you add up 5 or 6 weekends at a campground like Carter or Horsetooth if you take a boat, trailer etc.

That plus, no water skiers and being pounded by wave traffic and just a calm setting. Sorry, I'm starting to sound like a salesman but it really is a great place to enjoy the outdoors without all the idiots that seem to flock to water every sping summer and fall.

Thanks............that's not bad after the first year. How many members are there? It would be nice to have a wakeless lake. I'll pass the word for you................however I have no boat yet so that is where my money will go first. Thanks for the info.

Does the club own the recreation rights, including the rights to use of the surface of lake, or just the fishing and hunting rights?

A friend of mine is in a similar club and they are now in a huge fight with the ditch company over whether the ditch company has the right to let water skiers on the lake!

Thanks Mogul,, We have a cap of 80 members but to be honest, many of them are old timers and hardly ever even go to the lake.
This is an awesome place to belly boat as well.

Looks promising and if gas prices go up could actually be a darn good value. Am I to understand correctly that there are currently NO fish in the lake? If that is the case, might be a pretty tough sell..........figure 5 years to get the possibility of a really good 'eye or bass even if stocked at a catchable size. That's over $4000 before you get a shot at something good. Other than that if you are in for the long haul, could be a good investment. I wouldn't even consider it under the circumstances unless I had legal paper to guaranty that the club would have rights for at least ten years follow the 5yr "building" period. Other than that concern, looks like a good place.
