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.

Ice Fishing Derby

Sat. February 19, - Monday February 21

Saturday, February 19, 2022 – Monday, February 21, 2022
The Bluewater Anglers 2022 Ice Fishing Derby was a success despite Mother
Nature’s efforts to remove most of the ice from Sarnia Bay before the derby
started, and then freeze and blow participants off the ice during the derby.
Fortunately, people got out on Monday, the only nice day for ice fishing.
Participation in the Family Weekend event was good. There were 24 pictures
entered during the Ice Fishing Derby. One quarter of the pictures showed kids and
families enjoying the outdoors. A variety of fish were entered including coho
salmon, northern pike, perch, shad, rainbow trout and walleye.
Four winners were randomly drawn from the 24 pictures submitted. The lucky
Ice Fishing Derby winners are …
- Jonathan Walker (OKUMA Ice Rod donated by The Outdoorsman).
- Carson Sipkens ($50.00 Outdoorsman Gift Certificate).
- Chase Kwarciak ($50.00 Outdoorsman Gift Certificate).
- Shaelynne Plante-Hunter ($50.00 Outdoorsman Gift Certificate).
Thank you everybody who participated in this weekend’s Ice Fishing Derby.
Thanks to The Outdoorsman for their donation and assistance. Hopefully we can
do it again next year!
