The Upper Valley Chapter invites you to the Upper Valley Classic 2021 Virtual Outing!

  • When: June 26, 2021 at 6:00 am to July 3, 2021 at 6:00 pm
  • Where: Ottawa River (the entire stretch) / Madawaska Head Pond / Black Bay (Where the Baron River and the Petawawa river meet).
  • Registrants will be able to fish any of the three bodies of water and use any boat launch they wish. The outing will be open on the entire stretch of the mighty Ottawa River, from Mattawa ON  to the Hawkesbury ON stretch. That’s over 380 km of Ottawa River!
  • Cost: 30$ per angler. Muskie Canada member guest are welcome to participate with a MCI member.  All registrants will be entered in a door prize.
  • Unfortunately because of Covid 19 pandemic, there will be no specific Meet & Greet night, nor will there be a hosted dinner at the end of the event.  For this reason we have decided to make our event a week long event, to allow for maximum participation and to minimize angler travel to one specific area.
  • If you can not fish the weekend, no problem you have all week to catch your monster trophy!
  • Our Chapter would like to thank all of Muskies Canada members for their continued support and dedication to this valuable natural muskellunge fishery. We would like to also thank all the hard working Bait makers for their innovative and skilled work in producing some of the worlds best Muskie Baits!
