The Abbotsford Anglers

The Fishing Club at the Abbotsford Fish and Game Club is interested in fish habitat and it’s conservation, educating the public on pollution and the threats that it can bring to fish environments, river shore clean up projects, and of course Fishing! We will strive to bring as much information on the hot spots that other club members have discovered or know about, and any other fishing news that pretains to this great sport.
