The St. Joseph Rod And Gun Club
With the support of our members, St. Joseph Rod and Gun Club has been able to maintain the Lake accesses at Kraemer Lake and Watab (Long) Lake in St. Joseph, MN.
Since 1991, we have been stocking both lakes with walleye, crappie, and baitfish. In 1997, St. Joseph Rod & Gun Club started a free Birdhouse Build for children and their families. This yearly event takes place in March.
The Rod and Gun Club even has a lifetime membership for Pheasants Forever as well as a sponsoring membership in Thunder'n Toms Wild Turkey Federation.
