DWF was organized to unite walleye fishermen that ply the Detroit River and Lake Erie, for the purpose of exchanging ideas and information about perhaps the finest walleye fishing in the world. DWF presents quality seminars at its general membership meetings, held on the 3rd Monday of every month. Past speakers include Mark Martin, the 1990 In-Fisherman World Walleye Champion, Tom Huggler, one of Michigan’s most respected outdoor writers and camping editor for Outdoor Life, Denny Geurink of Field and Stream, plus top charter boat captains and local anglers. Our programs are outstanding.

Throughout the year, DWF members engage in walleye tourneys against other members. Tourney fees are low, but the level of competition is high. From river jigging to handline trolling and deep water walleye tactics on Lake Erie, DWF members can do it all and are willing to share their techniques with other members.

All DWF members receive a monthly issue of our newsletter,  the EYE CATCHER, which contains up-to-date information on local fishing as well as club sponsored activities.

Your DWF membership card includes valuable discounts from tackle shops and sporting goods stores in the Downriver Area.
