30th Annual St Joseph Rod & Gun Club Fishing Contest


We are sad to announce that due to lack of member support we won't be able to hold the annual fishing contest.

In its place we are happy to announce that we will be holding the first of what we hope will be many Outdoorsmans Raffles. Details will be out soon.


Fish Stocking

In 2022, the St. Joseph Rod & Gun Club purchased 50 pounds of black crappie from Bosek Fisheries located in Garfield, MN for $500. These fish will hopefully adapt and increase the overall population of black crappie in Watab/Rossier lakes. Interested in possibly donating more fish for Watab/Rossier lakes & Kraemer Lake please visit our donations page. Enter a brief description of what you would like to see done with your donation.
