Dedicated To Ensuring Future Generations Will Have Quality Fishing Opportunities
The Lake Huron Fishing Club is a conservation based Sports Club formed in 1983 by a dedicated group of anglers on the Ontario shore of Lake Huron.
Thousands of hours of volunteer work are completed each year by our Club Members operating two fish hatcheries, stream enhancements, environmental improvements, projects in schools, endeavors to protect the fishing rights of all citizens and assisting government agencies on assessment, enforcement etc.
When we are not working we love to enjoy, promote and share the sport we love.

Partial removal of Walkerton’s Truax Dam completed
BY RYAN DRURY OCTOBER 16, 2019
The Municipality of Brockton has completed the partial removal of the old Truax Dam.
Brockton Mayor Chris Peabody says the work done by the Lake Huron Fishing Club and Bruce Power on the project has resulted in a much nicer area for the municipality. The $600,000.00 project was financed by Bruce Power as part of its environmental stewardship program.
“They’ve got a little series of rapids where the dam used to be, as well as a promontory out in the middle of the river which will be a picnic area, a grassed area, so it looks fantastic and it gives you a great view of the river.”
Mayor Peabody says it’s a huge improvement over the rundown state of the old dam, which had become a safety hazard. He also says he had been floating the idea of re-purposing the dam area for nearly 20 years, and the changes have made a much better fish habitat.
The mayor notes that the work of the Lake Huron Fishing Club was instrumental, as well as major support from Bruce Power’s environmental stewardship program, which funded the whole project.
“Bruce Power’s contribution was $600,000 and we’re very thankful for that, we couldn’t have done it without them. There would have certainly been community opposition to those kind of tax dollars, so Bruce Power’s input was fantastic and they were with us the whole way.”
In terms of further development, Mayor Peabody says the municipality wants to first monitor how the river bed rehabilitates itself for the first few months before doing anymore upgrades. He says they may have to plant some trees and vegetation to help the natural flow of the river, which is currently very low.
A Great Lake Revival
The demise of alewives and salmon in Lake Huron brought something nobody expected: An explosion of native species. Is Lake Michigan next? And could a more diverse ecosystem offer protection against Asian Carp and other invaders?
Very interesting reading for any Lake Huron Fisherman
Denny's Dam History
By Club Member Ron Plaskett
You know there is Denny’s Dam and that there was an old bridge nearby. You even know about Thorncrest Outfitters with all their canoes and kayaks stored beside their house. You especially know that the fishing is very good. But what else do you know about where you fish?
