St. Mary’s Archer’s Club Catch and Release Tournament • CANCELLED 

Press Release September 7, 2021: The Archer’s Club will be open for parking 7 days/week beginning Oct 01 until Nov 11.  The parking donation will be $10 per car.  The gate at the top of the driveway will be closed at 200PM for no entry after that.  No parking will be allowed at anytime on the road at the top of the driveway and therefore no walk in access down the driveway.  On the dates not included above anglers can still fish any of the water adjacent to the Archer’s Club but access will have to be by walking and wading from downstream at the Park Ave Ext Fishing Trail or from upstream at the Waterport dam and anglers cannot be on the Archer’s Club grounds – only in the immediate bankside water.  You can lay a rod down on the bank or net a fish or walk around a wading obstruction for safety – but anglers cannot be on the Archer’s Club grounds on the dates not included above.  Many thanks to the Archer’s Club for opening up the Fall fishing access.  No prepared food will be served and the Catch and Release Fly Fishing Tourney will not take place for 2021.  This is the available info at this time, “unless something changes, it will be enforced.”
