Fish Stocking Update – October, 2020

As the first snow of the season fell throughout our community HLCC Fish Committee members Mark Grammerstorf, Bob Reffelt, Jim Stephens and I assembled at the Clubhouse parking lot awaiting arrival of a fish delivery from Zetts Fish Farms of Drifting, PA, a family operation servicing the Club for more than 20 years. This year the committee released Walleye in the 6”-7” size and Channel Catfish in the 3”-5” size in all five of our lakes. In addition, an added concentration of Shiners as baitfish were released in Lake 1 and Lake 3.

Fishing in Highland Lakes has been one activity not hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic this summer, and many more members found the time spent angling on the water both rejuvenating  as well as rewarding. Bass, both Largemouth and Smallmouth, are always ready to be caught. Yellow perch have never looked fatter and healthier and some big Walleye can be caught by those who know how. I can attest to some monster Catfish stripping my reel of line before being landed and quite a few slab Crappie have found their way to my freezer.

The HLCC Fish Committee continues to meet (safely) on the third Thursday of the month at 8 pm in the Lake Room.
