Please Practice Catch and Release
We encourage all Anglers to practice catch and release. Muskies are a valuable resource and we are most fortunate here in Ohio to have such a fine stocking program.
The reason for C&R is to sustain our fishery and grow trophy Muskellunge. Please take take a look at the article by clicking below.... thanks...

In Memory....Akron-Canton Chapter
In memory of our chapter president Gordon Selden April 17, 1952 - March 05, 2012
. You will be missed.
Akron-Canton lost a member Sunday October 21,2001. Gene Marks died of a heart attack. He was the club Treasurer and a very active member. It is said he and his grandson were out fishing the day before and he caught what would be his last Muskie. He will be missed much by myself and the chapter. We have lost a great fishing partner
