Our lake is a great spot for members to bring their families for quality bonding time.
East Monongahela Sportsmen's Club stocks the Lake a few times each year, starting with opening day of Trout. We also hold special events for the kids, including an annual Youth Fishing Day. Prizes and other mementos are given to all kids in attendance thanks to generous contributions from local and national outdoors shops.
In 2014, we made improvements to the shores of the lake that helped with drainage. In 2015, we installed new benches surrounding the Lake for our members and their families.
Fishing-specific rules can be found on our Club Rules page. Wounded fish are now to be kept by the angler.
A sincere thanks to all of the donors who made the 2023 East
Monongahela Sportsmen's Youth Fishing Day a HUGE success.

AND ALL OF THE DONORS WHO WISH TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS
The 2022 Youth Fishing Day was a great success even with the wind and the rain trying to stop everyone from having a great time. The rain stopped, the wind subsided, and everyone really enjoyed the day.

2019 Youth Fishing Day
The 2019 Youth Fishing Day was a great success! Thank you to everyone who helped out, attended, and to all who participated! Thank you again to Coronado Coal Company located in West Virginia for the funds to stock the lake for the event! We also received donations from the following for this years event: Prism Technologies, Moses Electrical Services, Giant Eagle Elizabeth, Wal-Mart Belle Vernon, Lowe's Belle Vernon, Cabela's, Field & Stream, EQT, and one anonymous donor. There were so many great pictures taken during this event that it needed two rows of sliding pictures. (Hover over the side edge of either end picture to make the pictures slide.)
