Rules for Fishing and the Lake

Since 2019 is an odd year catches may be taken if limits are met & followed (see signs posted), but remember catch and release back into the lake helps our lakes.  We follow the same guidelines and rules that are set by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  

There are no gasoline motor powered vessels permitted. Life jacket are to be worn/used correctly by all passengers in the vessel.

There is no swimming allowed in any of the clubs waters.

Only active club members and/or household family are allowed fishing activities or the use of any of the club property water.  The WMCC waters are private to current members.

Camping for members is $10.00 per night.

Camping is primitive and we do have public restroom available with no shower facilities.

Fires are only allowed in fire rings.  No exceptions.

Every campsite is required to be cleaned up before you leave the assigned campsite.

There are no camping sites or camping areas on the far side of the Lake.

Please be respectful.

A maximum total days are set at 10 days per month.

No monthly camping will be permitted without a decision from the WMCC board of directors.

Gun range and special firearm classes

Currently the Gun Range is CLOSED to all members for safety updates and renovations to make our shooting range safe for all.  

Special CCW/CHL classes are being offered to members and to the public on scheduled time during the year.  In conjunction with the training classes, the instructor and or range safety officer allow some open firing of firearms to meet the required course.  This is the only time the range is being used.  We are working to open the shooting range to club member as soon as we can.  At the present time there is no tentative date for reopening the range.
