About the First WI Chapter of Muskies, Inc.
Located in the Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls area of northwest Wisconsin, the First WI Chapter is a leader
in building a better Muskie fishery in Chippewa and Rusk Counties.
The First WI Chapter is one of over 40 chapters in the United States. Our club members are primarily
from the Chippewa Valley but we have members from as far away as Texas.
We are not limited to "dyed in the wool" muskie fisherman, everyone is welcome!
Please join us. Our general membership meetings are
open to everyone. Throughout the year, we have featured speakers and "on the water" gatherings on
Lake Wissota plus an annual tournament.
