Muskies Canada is an angling club whose interests extend beyond the mere catching of fish…

 

We also share an interest in the preservation of our target species, Muskellunge, and we hope to enhance this fishery by our direct involvement in the management of the species. The projects and programs we are managing have all been designed to raise the public’s awareness of the muskellunge fishery as well as to protect it.

Some of our numerous other projects include: Radio Telemetry projects on two Ontario rivers, Identification Sign projects in southern and eastern Ontario, and spawning habitat protection projects throughout Ontario. We annually participate in numerous Sportsman’s shows and conduct seminars for other angling clubs and community youth organizations such as Scouts and Guides. More information on these and all of our other programs is readily available by contacting one of our National Executive Directors, or a local Chapter Chairman.
