The next club outing is Sunday, April 23rd. The plan is for folks to fish the Rush River area, then meet up at the El Paso Bar & Grill in El Paso, WI at 4:00pm. (Some older folks call this the “Basement Bar”)
This is a casual outing that is at your own expense. So grab a friend and fish the afternoon hatch, and stop by the El Paso bar for tall tales and fish stories of the day’s adventure.

A Typical Outing
Most outings have a mid-day meal with them, either at a restaurant or club picnic-style at waterside. Restaurant meals are normally at the member’s expense. The outings include stream and lake fishing for species such as panfish, bass and trout. We’ve even added a musky outing to try your patience and stamina.
We try to have a set schedule at the beginning of the year, but due to situations beyond our control such as weather, flooding, fluctuating water levels or the picnic grounds being closed, we may have to move or reschedule outings. We will attempt to give adequate notice on these occasions.*
We strive for excellent adventure and camaraderie with plenty of good food served to all that partake in these wonderful outings. These fishing trips encourage new and old members to explore the wonderful fishing that the Twin Cities region has to offer.
Several trips are scheduled for the entire weekend, while others are single day trips to areas near the Cities. The weekend trips normally take more coordination and frequently require an RSVP, the day trips are more of the “Meet Up” variety where it is more casual and you arrange your own fishing partner(s) but meet for lunch. You must arrange transportation or car pooling in all cases.
Each fishing outing is run by Lunch Captains. These people coordinate arrangements for the meals. Club dues cover the meal cost of picnic outings and the Brule River outing. Breakfast and Bar meet -ups are typically on your own dime.
