WHO WE ARE. OUR MISSION.

The idea for establishing an organization like the Anglers of the Au Sable was borne out of the need to counter the efforts of individuals and organizations to rescind the 1986 Catch and Release fishing policy implemented by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Catch and Release Regulations, as they were adopted on the upper section of the Au Sable River’s main branch, popularly known as the “Holy Water,” specified that all trout, regardless of size, must be returned to the water unharmed.

Since then, this organization has grown to be so much more. Please take a moment and view our Current, Past, and Future Projects pages to see the many different things we do to protect, preserve, and enhance the AuSable and Manistee watersheds.
