Westlake Lake Management Association (WLMA) was established to oversee the maintenance of Westlake Lake. WLMA is governed by a Board of Representatives of 33 members who live or represent the commercial development around the lake. These Board members are elected annually by the lake members.
The lake offers boating and fishing opportunities for residents who live in the Westlake Recreation Area. If you have an interest in mooring an electric, fishing or sail boat in WLMA’s marina or in the Lakeshore Community docks, please contact the WLMA office to learn more at the contact information shown below. Office hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to Noon; 1 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
If you are a WLMA member and have questions concerning your annual assessments, private dock or boat, please feel free to give the office a call. We are here to help and make your lake experience an enjoyable one!
The Board welcomes your attendance at their monthly Board meetings held at the Westlake Yacht Club on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. Agendas are posted on this web site the week before each meeting. Homeowner comments are invited early in the meeting.
West Lake Activities
Fishing is a favorite pastime for young and old here on the lake. Our waters contain Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Bluegill Sunfish, and a minnow-sized critter known as a Silverside. Largemouth Bass (Micropterus Salmoides) is the dominant fish in our lake and one of the nation’s most prized game fish. We take special care to protect our wonderful fishery by limiting fishing to barbless hooks, artificial bait only and a strict catch and release policy. Fish caught in their bony mouth area and quickly released back to the water suffer no ill effects from the experience.
Westlake lake residents wishing to use or place a boat on Westlake Lake must apply and obtain a permit from WLMA. Application forms are available at the WLMA office. To obtain a permit, the owner completes an application form, insures the boat with the required level of insurance coverage, provides a certificate of insurance with WLMA named as an additional named insured and pays the annual fee set by and payable to WLMA. The fee is prorated monthly for applications made during the year.
