The Governor has lifted/modified parts of his stay at home order and listed COVID-19 Outdoor Recreation, Facilities and Public Guidelines on the DNR Website that still prevents the Chapter from holding any gatherings and requires social distancing in all activities. We have Cancelled all of our remaining June through August events including MN State High School Sectional Qualifier, June Jam Tournament and the June WAM outing.
We have modified our rules to require social distancing so that we can hold our Chapter Muskie Fishing League, Red Wing Lodge Trip and the Gil Hamm Chapter Challunge. Update your calendars. We will continue to update everyone as the situation progresses as to the status of all our events via our Newsletter, Website and Face Book pages.

Muskies, Inc. is an Active, Service-Oriented, 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization for men, women and children with the single focus of improving the sport of Muskie fishing everywhere.
Founded in 1966 by Gil Hamm, the original group of thirteen avid Muskie Fisherman concentrated on continual improvement of the Muskie Resource through rearing and stocking efforts, and sound conservation practices.
Today, Departments Of Natural Resources have realized the value of stocking Muskies. There are thirty-seven of the lower forty-eight states with active Muskie stocking programs.
Muskies, Inc. has expanded to over 6,000 Members and 50 independent Local Chapters throughout the country. We have become a national voice of the protection of the Muskie species. Muskies, Inc. is widely recognized as the first organized group of sports anglers to espouse the “Catch And Release” practice now embraced by many conservation minded groups throughout North America.
Today Muskies, Inc. focuses on three critical areas: Youth, Fisheries, And Research.
Fisheries – Muskies, Inc. works to conserve, protect and restore North America’s Muskie Fisheries. Areas of concern include habitat preservation, water quality, water management policies, and the development/maintaining of self-sustaining fish populations.
Research – Muskies, Inc. continues to seek out Elevate And Fund Research for local projects and activities that involve improving Muskie fisheries.
Youth – Muskies, Inc. provides guidelines and suggestions for quality programs and activities to educate our young members and, where possible, youth in general to ensure the future of the fishery.
