Fishing in Davis Lake
A "Catch and Release" Lake for Davis Lake Property Owners Only


The lake within the Davis Lake Community Association (DLCA) property boundaries is a beautiful focal point of our community. However fishing in the lake is restricted to only the residents who live within the DLCA boundaries. The DLCA boundary encompasses: Davis Lake Residential, Woodcroft and The Legacy. Davis Ridge is not a part of the Davis Lake Community Association. Residents are requested to bring their drivers' license or Davis Lake ID to the lake when fishing in case your address needs to be verified. You may NOT grant "visitor's rights" to your friends or guests.

Some residents have expressed their concern about non-residents of the DLCA fishing in the lake. The lake is stocked with fish and maintained using homeowner's association dues, and therefore should be used only by DLCA residents. Others are considered to be trespassing on private property. Davis Lake Community Association property is NOT "public" property. It is "private community property".

The Charlotte Police Department will be cooperating with the DLCA residents to help enforce this policy.  If you see a person at the lake that you think is trespassing, you should call 911 to report a possible non-resident fishing. You should also tell the 911 operator that the officer can check with our clubhouse manager for a list of streets in Davis Lake and those authorized to fish in the lake.

Non-residents of DLCA found fishing in the lake will be told of the policy and asked to leave and the officer will issue a report with that persons name on it. The officer will then give the club management a copy of the report to be place on file.. If the same person is ever back fishing again, the officer will do 1 of 2 things. They will either arrest the person, or assist the DLCA in getting a warrant for trespassing or a summons to appear in court.

We hope that we will not have to go to these extreme measures. Signs have been posted beside the lake to inform non-residents.
