King and Bear Fishing Guidelines -
King and Bear Fishing Guidelines 2-2014
It is very important to understand that the lakes are first and foremost Retention Ponds for Stormwater Management. They are not natural. They have all been created to take road & parking & impervious surface runoff together with whatever gets mixed into that surface water runoff. They take golf course, yard and common area runoff together with whatever gets mixed into those surface water runoffs. Some amounts of nutrients, fertilizers, pesticides, oils and other things inevitably get mixed into the various surface water runoffs to make their way into the Stormwater Retention ponds.
We will call them “lakes and Ponds” for the purpose of this report but they are specifically Stormwater Retention ponds.
WGV Recreation Committee 9/28/2011
Recreational fishing will only be permitted for residents of the King and Bear and their guests from the common areas of designated ponds within the gates of the King and Bear. Residents will not be allowed to fish from any golf course property or any private property along any pond.
Property owners whose property borders any pond will be allowed to fish from their own private property.
