Wright/Jager Development Proposal

In the winter of 2012, the former Walsh property was purchased by Don and Mary Wright, formerly of Bracebridge, and their daughter/ son-in-law, Sam and Emily Jager. Many LWRA members will be familiar with this property as the previous owners graciously allowed the LWRA to use it as the site of the AGM for several years. It lies beside the former residence of Ray and June Jones (which was also sold this winter).

OMB Hearing Results: Wright/Jager Development

UPDATE: We have received the formal written OMB ruling , attached as a PDF. 


The LWRA and the applicants negotiated a settlement which was confirmed by the OMB at the hearing January 22, 2013. As with any negotiated settlement, neither side got everything they wanted, but both achieved something they could live with.

Pieper (Smythe) Settlement

Following many weeks of negotiations, The LWRA and Sybille Pieper have reached an agreement with regards to the subdivision of her property.

As with any negotiations, neither side got everything they wanted out of the deal. However, we feel we have achieved what we could to protect the lake under the circumstances.

Final Fish Netting Report for Lake Waseosa

Members will recall that the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conducted a fish netting survey in August 2015, to evaluate the state of our fish populations. We published a brief initial summary of their findings last fall, in advance of their final report. The full report has now been produced, and is attached. 

Fish stocking in Waseosa completed

The Ministry of Natural Resources has stocked approximately 1,500 splake into Lake Waseosa, in late November. 

There was some feedback from LWRA members to this, and we are forwarding these comments to the MNR.
