We are a non-profit club that was formed in the mid 1980’s and the club was restarted up in 2013. Our club’s mission is to be the stewards of the creeks in the Municipality of Clarington, which includes Bowmanville Creek, Soper Creek, Wilmot Creek, and Graham Creek; to introduce youth and new anglers to the great sport of fishing, and to be actively involved in the community. We current have a membership of around 80 people and growing.
The club is involved in stream projects and conservation projects with the MNR, Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority, Valleys 2000, and the Municipality of Clarington. In 2013 many of our current members were involved in hand lifting over 10,000 Salmon and Trout over the Goodyear Dam on Bowmanville Creek and 5540 fish in 2012, while a new bypass channel was being constructed.
We are also a club that teaches youth and new anglers about river and great lakes fishing for salmon and trout. We bring in guest speakers from the fishing industry for our meetings, so our members can benefit and learn from experts in their fields.
Our club has raised over $1500.00 and 2000 lbs of food for the local Salvation Army food bank in the last 3 years through our annual Christmas party and Annual Bowmanville Tackle Swap and Fishing Show.
