SUBWAY'S 2014 Anglers of the Year

The St. Lawrence River is known as one of the best fishing destinations in the world.  This mighty river is the watershed of the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean making it one of the largest fresh waters on the planet.

A place with four seasons, Northern New York's rivers provide an ideal habitat for the walleye.  The deep waters with strong currents as well as a host of feeding tributaries makes the river a sportsman's dream come true with outstanding fishing.  While 5-10 pound walleye are not uncommon, this elusive fish will offer any fisherman a challenge.

The St. Lawrence River Walleye Association is making strides to preserve this wonderful fishery and protect it from modern influences for our future generations.  It is the hope and desire of the organization to one day build a research, hatchery and visitors center to provide cutting edge laboratories and facilities to study the impact of man, natural occurences and invasive species on the walleye.   

We are actively seeking grant monies and other partnership funding to build the center, but your participation in SLRWA tournaments, providing sponsorships and your individual or business memberships support these efforts on a grassroots level, and for that, we thank you!
