Lake Upchurch question.

How do you get on the lake if you do not live there, and you do not want to pay $10 every time you launch a boat? I have a 12' sears game fisher and mostly like to just float around and catch and release fish.

I am planning to talk to a friend of mine about allowing FAAN members use of his ramp. It sits on a vacant lot so I may be able to work a clean-up deal or something of the sort in exchange for access. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

If any FAAN officials object, please let me know. The last thing I want to do is step on any toes. Very Happy

I'd love to fish Upchurch, but with me and my bud in kayaks, that's 20 bucks to launch at Waldo's. But with that being a local lake, we'd be making alot of trips out there fairly regularly. That can get pricey real quick. Don't get me wrong; I don't mind paying to launch under certain conditions, but 10 bucks a pop will add up real quick if you're going out multiple times a week.

kayaks

They won’t let you use the waldo's beach part to launch
kayaks even if you pay the money. They informed me that kayaks are considered pleasure
crafts and are not allowed and that the only way would be to use a private property to
launch from.

So.....Who owns the lake?

Post  bdarby on Tue Apr 10, 2012 11:01 am

Is it a public lake? Do the friendly people who chose to live around the lake own it? Does the Waldo's Beach area include the boat ramp? What does the NC wildlife commission say about the lake? The way I see it from my small viewpoint is the lake is used by Camp Rockfish, Waldo's Beach, of course the people who live around the lake, and those of us who wish to enjoy a good day of fishing.

I met a young man who said he owns the land up river from the lake. He mentioned someone who allows people to launch from his house for $2. Not sure where this person lives but I would pay $2.

I gotta say that really rubs me raw. I know it's a private lake and I get that, but if that's the attitude of the owner of the beach area, then I'd rather go take my yak and flyrod to the neighbor's backyard pool than to go out there.

I called the phone # of the boat ramp and talked to the guy everyone is talking about. I asked him if he would charge a yearly fee at a discount rate and he really didn't understand anything i was saying! He just keep talking about the 10 dollar fee only on the weekend and he kept asking me if i owned a fishing boat or if i was going to ski. I am hoping someone finds someone that will let us use there land or ramp!
