Fishing Clubs

Virginia Fishing Clubs

One of VSSA’s goals is to support all our fishing clubs and assist the clubs in growing their membership.  VSSA is not trying to replicate or duplicate what the clubs are doing and we do not want to become another local fishing club.  We are a statewide association wanting our clubs to grow and become strong.

VSSA encourages all saltwater anglers in the state to find the nearest fishing club in your area and become a member.  Our fishing clubs in Virginia are all outstanding.  Most meet monthly during the week and feature a guest speaker on various fishing related topics.  Additionally, most have tournaments, banquets, fishing awards, and various events throughout the year.  All welcome guests free of charge to sit in on monthly meetings.

If you are already a member a local fishing club, ask your board how your fishing club can become an official Affiliate member of VSSA.  As a club Affiliate member of VSSA, members of fishing clubs receive:

  • Emails and communications from VSSA through the clubs president or board member.
  • Access to all our exclusive YouTube seminar series videos about targeting fish in Virginia.
  • A vote during VSSA General Membership meetings.
  • The club is offered a seat on the VSSA board helping to guide VSSA activities.
  • Participating directly or indirectly in fishery management decisions.
  • Helps to unite all anglers in Virginia so we can speak with a united voice.

Here is a list of all the club in Virginia.  Please find one closest to you and consider joining.  If this list is not complete, please send an email to
