Wake Responsibly: You Are Responsible for Your Own Wake

While wakeboarding on the water this summer, the Wildlife Commission urges you to follow the guidelines below to "wake responsibly:" 

  • Stay at least 200 feet away from the shoreline, docks or other structures
  • Keep music at reasonable levels. Sound travels well over water. If it is loud enough to hear at 80 feet back, it is likely loud enough for homeowners and other to hear as well.
  • Minimize repetitive passes on any one portion of the shoreline. Once you've run the same line for awhile, move on to another area. 

Turn up the sound up and enjoy Amanda's catch

For several years, some rare birds have made a stop at the High Rock Lake dam.

Debbie Montgomary is always waiting for them with her camera in hand.

“Just give us a little show, we can handle it today,” Montgomary said, while watching the birds. “Sometimes you see different birds in this area.”

Water’s Edge Dock and Grill owners hope to bring new life to High Rock Lake scene

By Liz Moomey


HIGH ROCK LAKE — Downtown restaurant owners Mikey Wetzel and Todd Littleton both live out on the lake and want to make it a destination for others.

The duo has purchased the former High Rock Boat & Ski Club, at 257 Boat Club Lane, and are in the middle of renovating it into what will be known as Water’s Edge Dock and Grill. The pair say they got an opportunity last year they couldn't turn down.
