Upper Valley Chapter – Introduction

“G’Day”  from the MCI  Upper Valley Chapter!
Established in January 2006,  the Upper Valley Chapter is based in the Ottawa Valley in Eastern Ontario, with membership stretching from Arnprior through to Petawawa and beyond.
Our Chapter meets from October to May on the third Wednesday of every month at the Royal Canadian Legion in Cobden ON which is located in the centre of our geographical area.
Meeting Location:  43A Main St, Cobden, ON K0J 1K0
Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday October 16,  2024 at 7:30 pm.
MCI Upper Valley welcomes you to come out and meet your Chapter members, your executives and share fishing stories over a cold one!
If you are not a Muskies Canada member, come on out and speak to our membership and learn about the great things that Muskies Canada does to enhance and protect our valuable Muskellunge fishery. We will guide you and inform you on how to become a member.
Do you have a bait you wish to trade? get rid off?….well here is your chance, we will also be having a bait swap amongst our members, so come prepared and bring some baits to trade or discard.
With the world-class fishery of the Ottawa River and its many tributaries at our doorstep, there are a variety of opportunities for both the novice and seasoned muskie angler. We have a wealth of local muskie enthusiasts from near and far which makes our meetings informative, educational, and always entertaining.

Our chapter is dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of the local sport Muskie fishery, with an emphasis on public education and sharing of knowledge and ideas. This year in conjunction with Carleton University, Muskies Canada will be involved in a research telemetry  project on the Petawawa River system. Stay tuned for more information to follow. This will be a three year project, a first for Muskies Canada and the results should be very interesting.  Muskie Canada anglers will be the main source of capturing and releasing these magnificent fish.  If you are not a muskies Canada member, join now and get in on the action!

We are strong believers in catch photo and release, If you have any questions on the Upper Valley chapter , feel free to contact via email Jaime Sebastian our Chairperson at   fishwithjaime@gmail.com

Hope to see you all this season and at our Chapter outings!

Kind Regards,

Jaime Sebastian
