The Beaver Lake 2019 One Day Ice Fishing Derby and Ice Chef Cook-Off IS ON!  The ice conditions are finally favorable to holding the event.

The Derby and Cook-Off will be held on Saturday February 23, 2019  7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

After testing the ice at different parts of the lake today, we are seeing from 6 1/2 to 8 inches of solid ice in all areas.  Even the ice at West Beach is looking good: poor ice at the beach has been a real issue for the last few weeks.

Sorry for any scheduling issues/inconveniences that delays have caused, but running a derby with safe ice conditions is the most important priority.

We are still looking for judges to help with the Ice Chef Cook-Off.  Its a great chance to see cooking on the ice and taste some great food.  Travel between Ice Chef sites will be provided by snowmobile/ATV.  Give it a try - its fun.  Contact Russ or Mike if you are interested.

Please contact Derby Coordinators Russ Mooney (413-537-9141, lr3cmooney@comcast.net) or Mike Cygan (413-658-8140, mecygan@comcast.net) if you have any questions.

Hope to see all of you fisherpersons and Ice Chefs on the 23rd!  Even if you are not planning to fish or enter Ice Chef, come on out and join the fun.  Maybe you will be able to convince an Ice Chef to give you a sample of their cuisine!

Beaver Bytes is an e-mail communication issued by the BeaverlakeCC.com website to inform website members about current BLCC news and upcoming events.


 

The Beaver Lake 2019 One Day Ice Fishing Derby and Ice Chef Cook-Off has been postponed for another week due to less than required ice thickness.

The Derby and Cook-Off are now planned for Saturday February 23, 2019  7:00 AM to 5:00 PM

NOTICE: ICE THICKNESS MUST BE AT LEAST 6 SOLID INCHES FOR THE DERBY TO BE HELD.  WATCH FOR BEAVER BYTES NEWSLETTERS NEXT WEEK FOR DERBY GO/NO-GO STATUS

After testing the ice on different parts of the lake today, we were seeing less than 6” of ice in many areas.  We are hoping that the temperatures forecast over the next nine days will give us a solid 6” of ice by the 23rd.

Sorry for any scheduling issues this may cause but running a derby with safe ice conditions is the most important priority.

Please contact Derby Coordinators Russ Mooney (413-537-9141, lr3cmooney@comcast.net) or Mike Cygan (413-658-8140, mecygan@comcast.net) if you have any questions.

Hope to see all of you fisherpersons and Ice Chefs on the 23rd!

Notes about judging/determining fish sizes:  All submitted photos will be carefully reviewed by the photo judge.  Fish lengths will be measured from the tip of the snout (with mouth closed) to the tip of the tail.  Accuracy of determining fish size will somewhat depends on the quality of the submitted photo of the fish against the yardstick/ruler.  During determination of fish length, attempts will be made to compensate for poor alignment of the fish against the zero point of the yardstick/ruler.  When multiple photos of leading judged fish lengths fall within 1/8” or less of each other, a tie for the category will be declared.
Please remember that BLCC/BLTI encourages Catch and Release of all fish caught in Beaver Lake. This includes Pickerel.
 
So here we go!  Hopefully the ice will get to the required 6" thickness so that we can hold the derby.

Important Update On Repair Of The Beaver Lake Dam Spillway

         

Beaver Lake Dam News

Volume 5 - September 27, 2018

Beaver Lake Dam News is an e-mail communication issued by the BeaverlakeCC.com website to inform website members about current news and developments related to the Beaver Lake Dam Renovation Project


IMPORTANT UPDATE ON REPAIR OF BEAVER LAKE DAM SPILLWAY

After several weeks of impressive progress towards getting the repairs of the Beaver Lake Dam Spillway by T Ford underway, we have reached an 11th hour snag which will result in postponing the repairs until late summer 2019.  In brief, the Mass Department of Transportation has ordered the bridge on Old Belchertown Road to be closed.  Because of this, the Town of Ware will require the bridge on Beaver Lake Road/Babcock Tavern Road, going over the spillway, to remain open in the morning and afternoon for school buses, and also to give consideration for emergency vehicles.  T Ford has determined that such a schedule would slow down their work, creating inefficiencies and could make it difficult for them to complete the repairs before more severe winter weather would make it impossible to work.  From all discussions had today with state and local officials, it appears that all notification and permitting requirements that have already been satisfied will remain valid over the next year or more, and we believe the arrangements made for a construction loan will also remain in effect.  More details concerning this change will be available for discussion at the Beaver Lake Club annual meeting on October 21, 2018 (10 AM at Workshop 13 located at 13 Church St, Ware).  We regret to report this news which is extremely disappointing for all involved.
