Next Meeting

to the Ottawa Chapter of Muskies Canada Incorporated! (MCI)

Originally called the “Ottawa Valley” Chapter, we've been a focal point for muskie anglers from all over the Ottawa/Gatineau region since 1988.   Our membership is comprised of experienced and novice anglers, young and old, ladies and gentlemen … all with a shared passion for the largest game fish in Eastern Ontario.

We meet at 7:00 PM, on the third Tuesday of every month at Branch 632 of the Royal Canadian Legion, 800 Taylor Creek Drive in Orleans. Map  If you’re curious about what the Chapter and the club is all about, non-members are welcome to come by and have a look.  Please contact one of the Chapter Executives before you come out, or introduce yourself at the beginning of the meeting.  (Note: July and August we either do not hold “formal” meetings, OR we get together on the water somewhere in the area to discuss fishing conditions, what baits are working, etc.)
Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been chasing muskies for 30 years, we try to present meetings that have something for everyone with an emphasis on learning something new and having some fun doing it.  We have a range of speakers from some of our own members with various expertise, to guest speakers who talk about tackle, equipment, electronics, boat maintenance, bait makers, biology, research projects and reports from folks who have done trips to exotic muskie waters. At least once a year (normally in the spring) we do a pizza night and tackle swap where some excellent deals can be had – especially for those who are just starting out.  We do our best to keep the club “business” to a minimum and the enjoyment to a maximum.

Activities:  Once a year we host a Chapter Outing consisting of a day of fishing, a banquet (usually at the Legion as well), a raffle table focused on muskie “stuff” and a trophy for the largest muskie caught and released.  (Open only to MCI members and their guests).  The Chapter also gives back to the community through other events such as support to kids fishing days, shoreline cleanup projects, etc.  We also organize a couple of informal Chapter fishing days over the season and our members use the Members Only Forum to find fishing partners if they are solo, or their regular partner can’t make it out.  Public outreach projects also help us support our mandate of education, by providing an opportunity to spread the “gospel” of catch and release fish, safe muskie handling, and how to “Know the Difference” between pike and muskie.

Upcoming Ottawa Chapter Meetings

  • March 20, 2018
    Awards Night We'll be getting together at the Orleans Legion (7PM as usual) for a report from the Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors and AWARDS NIGHT! We'll be handing out the pins and certificates for those who enjoyed some success on the water last year, including the trophy for the largest catch and release of 2017. We'll discuss our plans for the rest of 2018, including the Chapter Outing on June 16th and the budget, and I'll talk about our angling results based upon a review of the Log Program data over the last 5 years on the Ottawa, Rideau and St Lawrence Rivers. Did the high water levels in 2017 have an impact on our angling results? Join us and find out! Hope to see you there!
