2019 St. Clair River Results

Another beautiful day in August on the St. Clair River! The bite was a little tough for most of us with only one team bringing in a full bag. However, a great day of fishing nonetheless! Congrats to Aaron Hathaway & Joseph Hwang for taking the win (along with Big Fish @ 5.37lbs), T.J. Raytrowsky & Ian Fogarty in second, and Mike Craftchick & Matt Fryer with third. Until next time!

1st Place – Aaron Hathaway & Joseph Hwang

Conservation – FCBM x Blue Fish Canada

Forest City Bassmasters (FCBM) has partnered with Blue Fish Canada (BFC) in an effort to further promote conservation in London and the surrounding area. Blue Fish Canada is a registered charity dedicated to protecting the health and future of Canada’s water and wild fish stocks. Donations can be made here 

Support from Blue Fish Canada includes providing the club with a Fishing Tackle Recycler for tournament day use, to collect and recycle used fishing tackle such as line, lead weights and jigs, soft plastic baits, and other terminal tackle.

In addition to this, FCBM’s Conservation Director (Matt Fryer) has been working with BFC President, Lawrence Gunther in combination with staff from the UTRCA to get a Fishing Tackle Recycler installed at boat launches in each of the local conservation areas. We are very excited to announce that Fanshawe CA is the first to be on board with the program! You can find the recycler attached to their reservoir sign beside the boat launch.
