The Portage Anglers Club was formed in November of 2001 by private residents concerned with the lakes in the Curtis area. Their goal is to help supplement the population of fish in the lakes by raising funds to purchase and stock walleyes, build structure for the fish, and revive the Walleye Jamboree which was always a popular fishing contest in the past. One other goal is to purchase, erect, and maintain public fishing piers on the lakes.
Last fall the Anglers Club purchased 1700 Walleye ranging in length from 8″ to 12″. Many volunteers came out to help the club clip the fins of these fish before putting them in the lake, a request from the DNR.
The Anglers Club working with the DNR putting in one million walleye fry.
GOALS OF THE CLUB:
1. RAISE MONEY FOR A WALLEYE STOCKING PROGRAM IN THE MANISTIQUE LAKES.
2. BRING BACK THE WALLEYE JAMBOREE.
3. CONTINUE TO BUILD AND MAINTAIN FISHING PIERS IN SOUTH MANISTIQUE LAKE.
4. SUPPORT A STRUCTURE PROGRAM FOR BOTH THE BIG AND SOUTH MANISTIQUE LAKES.
