    In addition to the long waiting list, I believe you must be "sponsored" by a current club member. Then there is a one time capital contribution your first season, ($1500 last I heard) Then, yearly dues of around $500 each season thereafter.

    Pretty sure the club is limited to around 75 members which makes for the long waiting list.

    This info is just from conversation with some current members.

    Re: Lake Solitude Fishing Club

    The club like many others in the State went belly up. There are stretches of water out there that used to belong to fishing clubs but are no longer due to economic downturn. They will never tell you nor the State but the few insiders will continue to fish it for free. If the lease is up on certain stretches and it became public it is not for you to know, you like many others will be left in the dark. Try to contact some of these clubs, you know why you can't get an answer or find any owners, because they are no longer clubs, just water YOU think is private. If a club on a great stretch of water goes under, there is no way ANYONE will be saying anything.

    Typically clubs lease private land, but just because the lease expires doesn't mean it becomes public. Leases are not ownership. Its still private land. (but that doesn't stop you from asking the actual landowner for permission if you know the club went under and the lease expired.)

    Re: Lake Solitude Fishing Club

    If you found a property owner who had leased to a now failed club, wouldn't inquiring about the value of the previous lease and making an offer more readily in line w/ the current economy be a great way to start your own club?

    Re: Lake Solitude Fishing Club

    The Solitude Club is alive and well in spite of andyfish's comments. Yes, their waiting list is ridiculously long. On top of needing at least one sponsor, perspective members are expected to help with various work projects often years in advance before an opening comes up. I have several friends in that particular club and a couple more who have been patiently waiting and helping for years.

    I know most of the clubs in this state, at least all of the larger ones and do not know of any in fear of losing their leases. All the clubs have waiting lists whether they own their land or lease it.

    I waited for some time to get into mine, but not too long. Doesn't hurt to ask. Good luck

    Re: Lake Solitude Fishing Club

    I have fished with friends in a few of NJs and the Catskills clubs, and know people in the Lake Solitude Club. The fishing is good, but not spectacularly so, and the crowds are generally less, but there are tons of places outside the KLG where I rarely see other fly fishermen. Clubs are good for the fellowship and a link to history, but they aren't necessarily fishing Nirvana.

    BTW, the sickest fishing in any "club" I fished at was the old Connetquot SP. 100 fish days were the norm and rarely a day without a 2 foot trout in the mix. Hopefully it will get past its diease issues and go back to its former glory. That said, I could fish there no more than once or twice a year - it just got too routine after a while.
