Formed in 1992, the Lake Poygan Sportsmen’s Club is a 501(c)3
organization that works together with state and local governmental
agencies and local landowners to help protect and restore
the fragile fish and wildlife habitat on Lakes Poygan and Winneconne
and on the Lower Wolf River.
Our members are landowners, boaters, hunters, and fishermen. Our primary focus is
on habitat, which extends to all activities on the lakes.
We recognize that the
fabric of our ecosystem is a complex weave of various plant and animal
communities, and that the interests of our membership and the public at large will be best
served by the protection of this ecosystem for all of the creatures that
live here. Therefore, we work to protect and restore plant and animal
communities that are at risk due to ice scour, wave action and
detrimental effects of human activity on our portion of the Winnebago
Cane bed protection and shoreline protection are just two of the many
types of projects in which we have participated during the life of the
Club. Some recent examples of successful projects include the
installation of the carp barrier at Pages’ Slough, the Boom Bay
rip rap project, the dredging of Pony Creek, walleye reefs in the lake,
"fish sticks" along the Wolf River, and in 2016, the Poygan Break wall.
