Reminder: Weekend RV and Trailer Parking

Please don't forget - trailers and RVs cannot be parked in the boathouse parking areas.
Please be considerate of your dock mates, and park trailers and RVs in the grassy area near the lot for the weekend instead of taking up parking spaces near the boathouses.
Kick the summer off right with National Fishing & Boating Week at Highport.
National Fishing & Boating Week
Running June 2 - 10, the Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatUS) has 5 ways to celebrate:

  1. The next time you head out on the water, take someone boating, fishing or sailing who has never done it before. 
  2. Teach someone how to run a powerboat, how to sail, or how to catch a fish. 
  3. Watch instructional videos and read tips from pros on how to cast, tie knots, and make fishing rigs at takemefishing.org
  4. Check out TakeMeFishing.org to see which days you can fish without a license and plan a free fishing day outing.
  5. If you are new to boating, BoatUS has all the information you need on how to select and find a boat that’s right for you and be safe on the water at BoatUS.com/NewToBoating. Or visit www.Youtube.com/BoatUS to learn basic boat-handling and fishing skills.
