Fishing Committee

Pete Lyden-Fishing Chairperson

The Lake Shawnee Club maintains an active & self-sustaining fishing committee who organize all fishing contests on the lake and helps to advise the Board of Governors on fish stocking, etc. All proceeds from contests and any purchase of optional fishing badges all go directly toward fishing committee activities.  


Even though we are a private lake all fishermen are required to obtain a NJ State Fishing License.  

Although not required, the Club also sells fishing badges at $1.00 each which goes to help fund the fishing committee activities. Badges can be purchased each year at the Club Office.

In addition to the Club’s standing rules, boaters on Lake Shawnee must adhere and comply with all NJ State Boating regulations.
