The Fly Fisher’s Code of Ethics
 
1). Obey all laws and regulations, and report violations.
2). Release fish carefully and quickly.
3). Be considerate of private and public property.
4). Set a good example for and help others who are not as experienced as you are.
5). Rotate the pool and /or positions, so others may have an opportunity to fish, especially during a hatch. 
6). Respect the area in which someone is fishing. Do not intrude or crowd other anglers.
7). Assist another angler who has hooked a fish, including reeling in your line if appropriate.
8). Keep our waters and surrounding property free from trash and litter.
9). Wade carefully and do not disturb water unnecessarily. 
10). Treat others as you would want them to treat you.
 
This applies to all types of fishing, not just fly fishing.

Outdoor Pistol Starting in April

    

The Wednesday night Outdoor pistol League is starting soon (Starting First Wednesday in April 2022)!

To participate, you must complete a Club safety check.

There is no fee for Club members. It is part of your membership.

Non-Club members can participate in the season for a fee and must sign a waiver. You must pay for the season (fee is $75).

All new participants must pass a Club safety check.

We do four safety checks before the season begins.

If you have already done a safety check, you do not have to do another.

You only need to attend one of the four dates below.

2022 Safety Check Dates :

Wednesday 3/9/22 - 6:30pm

Saturday 3/19/22 - 10am

Wed 3/23/2022 - 6:30pm

Sunday 3/27/2022 - 10am

You only need to attend one of the four dates.

 

Upper pistol range will be closed during these safety checks.

For the Safety check, you will be shooting. You will need a firearm in a case, at least three magazines, eye protection, ear protection, and one box of ammo. No Holsters please.

All firearms must be unloaded and in a case for the safety check.

Rifle Range

There is a new sign-in station and 24 hour camera surveillance due to past abuse and destruction of the range.

There was an incident in the past on the range where someone was handling a firearm while people were down range changing out targets. This is absolutely unacceptable. No firearms are to be handled, even to case or uncase, while anyone is down range. You will lose your membership.

The 200 yard pit is for authorized personnel only and not open to the general membership.
