Unit Description: The Manitowoc Unit is the founding unit of the Fish & Game organization. The club represents the City of Manitowoc, but has membership from individuals throughout the county overall. The club has taken on a variety of projects over the years including managing the access and aerator at Weyers Lake and funding all related costs. More recently the club took a leadership role in the redevelopment of Silver Lake on Manitowoc’s west side. The unit has also been involved in the Junior Riffle program and a number of other local projects.
Manitowoc Gun Club is also a partner member of the Manitowoc Unit and we are proud to have common members. Fall meetings are held at the newly remodeled Gun Club and we partner of fish fries and other shared events where possible.
Unit meetings are generally attended by around 30 to 40 members and guests and the meetings are always open to the public. We encourage families to attend to keep up on what is happening in the area and it is a great place to learn where the fish are biting. Meetings usually begin with a guest speaker, ranging from the local game warden to groups working on related projects in the county. This is followed by a short business meeting and then lunch and refreshments. We welcome you to join us!
