Lake Manassas – Public Access Update

May 24 — The Manassas City Council has scheduled an update on proposals to open Lake Manassas to the public for fishing and boating at tonight’s meeting, 5:30 p.m. at City Hall (click here for the agenda).

The Virginia Dept. of Game & Inland Fisheries (DGIF) is working with the City of Manassas to find a suitable lake operator, including consideration of George Mason University and others. DGIF has budgeted money to construct a ramp and finger pier, which can move forward when an agreement is reached between all involved parties.

This update follows the Council’s December 7 work session, where the Council voted unanimously to direct the Utilities Commission to continue negotiations with DGIF to open Lake Manassas to public use. Following the update at tonight’s meeting, the Council could schedule a new work session to review and consider more detailed information.
