The Anglers Mission Statement

To preserve, protect and enhance the Au Sable River System for future generations of fly fishers.


The Anglers of the Au Sable are a 600-member strong, 501(c)(3) environmental conservation organization founded in Grayling, Michigan, on January 18, 1987. There is no paid staff. Our client is the Au Sable River and its natural and recreational environs, including the neighboring Manistee River. We communicate to our membership at an annual meeting held each September at which up to 12 directors are elected. Four officers are then nominated and elected by the directors for one-year terms. We also publish a quarterly newsletter, The Riverwatch, which is distributed to our membership, sister conservation organizations, and members of the media and government.

The Anglers of the Au Sable is much more than a fishing club. Our activities are driven by issues affecting the greater Au Sable ecosystem. To that end, we have and will continue to intervene in: fishing and recreational legislation; National Guard expansion and training activities at Camp Grayling; pollution and other environmental problems; stream improvement programs; fisheries and environmental research; educational programs; and sponsorship of affiliated conservation organizations that further the interests of the Au Sable.

Help us, help you!  The Anglers is an all volunteer organization.  Your support and involvement can help protect this beloved watershed.
