The Watchic Lake dam gate will be opened on about Monday November 1, 2022 (plus or minus a few days depending on weather) for the winter. Following the opening, the lake level will go down to its winter level over the course of about two to four weeks (depending in part on rainfall). Lowering the lake level protects our shoreline from winter ice damage. Plan your boat and dock removal accordingly.
To help with your planning, November 1 is our estimated opening date for the coming years. If future adjustments are needed due to climate changes, we’ll notify our members via email and on this website
