Fishing with the Wintergreen Sporting Club

Spring is here and it’s time to fish! The Wintergreen Sporting Club (WSC) has an active group of fisher-folk who enjoy the sport and sharing their stories of the ones that got away. They host a popular, but very informal get together to talk fishing. They usually meet at Wild Wolf Brewery monthly on the first Monday afternoon of the month at 4 pm. If the weather is nice they’ll meet outside in the beer garden, otherwise you'll find them on the inside porch. Join them and you’ll get an insider peek at what’s happening in the fishing world of Stoney Creek – where the fish are biting, what baits have been successful, etc. Everyone is welcome and WSC membership is not required. There is no cost; the only pre-requisite is to love fishing, or want to learn about the sport, and be willing to share your experience and ask questions.

The Wintergreen Sporting Club is for people who love the outdoors and outdoor sports – archery, boating, shooting, biking and fishing. But there is also a social and service aspect to the group which is expanding. Learn more!

Big news! I finally caught a grass carp!, says Chris Corish. “i had noticed the carp were eating the pellet food the club is feeding on trout pond so i cast a pellet fly on Saturday morning (March 30) to a couple of cruising carp and one actually took it. I guessed the carp was 35-40 lbs. It took me almost 30 minutes to reel in.”
