Welcome from the Bluewater Anglers

We are a group of people who are dedicated to sustaining and preserving the fish stocks in lower Lake Huron.  We are based around Sarnia, Ontario where the St.Clair River begins its journey south out of Lake Huron.  Our geographical location provides fishing oppurtunites for almost every species found in the Great Lakes.  At any point in the year there is different species biting a short boat ride or drive away.  

We are very fortunate to have such a resource in our backyard and we enjoy sharing and educating people about preserving this amazing fishery.  Every year the club members work hard to safely raise thousands of salmon and trout in our fish culture station in Point Edward.  These fish are then released into lower Lake Huron and St.Clair River for the enjoyment of all.  We offer tours to anyone who wishes to see what it takes to raise over 130 000 salmon and trout.  Check out the hatchery page for more information.

We put on many fund raising events during the year that offer the chance to get out and enjoy the great fishery and possibly win a prize.  The Bluewater Salmon Derby, Walleye Derby, Big Fish Derby, are a few that provide the club with the means to operate the hatchery and ensure that the fishery is kept strong and healthy.

We are always looking for new members who share the same values and want to be part of this cause.
