The Pinedale Boat Club is currently inactive, since 2018. In the past they sponsored several events throughout the year including a horseshoe pitch in early June. Later that month, they sponsor the Father's Day Fishing Derby (members only). In August they hold their annual Fremont Lake Sailing Regatta, a two day, five-race competition for sail boats of all kinds. They wrap up the season in late August with a cookout. The Winter Fishig Derby and the Sailing Regatta are now sponsored by the Pinedale Lions Club. See their Facebook page for current details about these events.

During late winter, the Lions Club places a barrel out on Fremont Lake. Then in April, the club sponsors a barrel drop guessing contest fundraiser to determine when the ice will melt off Fremont Lake causing the barrel to drop into the water and touch the side of the lake. The prize is $500. Deadline for barrel guesses is midnight, March 31st. The contest is open to those who enter in the Winter Fishing Derby..
