AuSable River Cleanup

September 12, 2020

Cleaning our river
Wading in the river to clean it

Cleaning our River

PLEASE PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

Each September, on the Saturday after Labor Day, the Michigan Fly Fishing Club spends time together with many other fly fishers from around the state to walk areas of our beloved AuSable River and clean debris from its river bottom and banks. The cleanup, sponsored by the Anglers of the AuSable, is a wonderful way to give something back to the river we fish during the summer.

We wade ‘beats’ that run from one access point to another and with our poking sticks and plastic rubbish bags collect items that have been dropped or lost during the summer. Between beer cans, flip flops and the occasional bathing suit its always an adventure.

Clean-Up Areas

  • UPPER RIVER
    We will meet at Gates Au Sable Lodge at 10:00 am. The casting field will have signs designating all runs, where you’ll meet the rest of your team and work out logistics. Then there will be a brief pep rally and a group photo before you head out.
    The George Alexander Memorial Luncheon will await crews returning with their treasures!
