2020 Fin & Feather Banquet Cancelled

In light of COVID-19, the officers of Lake Panorama Fin and Feather have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Annual Banquet.

This decision was made due to public gathering restrictions hampering committee planning activities, in combination with a lack of suitable dates for rescheduling the event.

We want to thank those who have already purchased 2020 membership/banquet tickets!

We truly appreciate your support, and we will be reaching out to you individually to let you know that your donations, tickets, or other payments will be carried over to 2021.

If you would prefer to have a refund instead of carrying over your membership, please contact our Treasurer.

Volunteers Wanted! Fishing Structure Project 2018

Thanks to the ongoing support of our members and donors, the time has come to begin preparations for our 2018 Fishing Structure Project.

This year we will once again be sinking trees and other structure in strategic locations on Lake Panorama.

To make this big job easier, we are asking for members and supporters to volunteer some time on Sunday afternoon, June 10, 2018. We will be meeting at the marina at 1PM. 

Any extra chainsaws, ATVs, and helping hands are welcome, as we cut and drag trees down to the shore.

All of this effort will go towards adding quality fish habitat, which leads to improved fishing  opportunities and success on our lake.

Be sure to dress appropriately, work clothes, gloves, and safety glasses are recommended.

Hope to see you there!
