Club Events

Come Join Us Saturday May 11 !!!    

The Veazie Salmon Club will be hosting an Opening Season Day breakfast and BBQ from 7am-2:30pm. The public is welcome to come enjoy the Club along with great food, fishing, and chances to win some great prizes being raffled and auctioned!

Re-organized as a vibrant 501(c)(3) with a full complement of Officers and by-laws to operate, the Veazie Salmon Club is rebuilding for the future. Fishing plus so many other local traditions along our waterways have long-shaped our cultural and economic history. For centuries people have traveled the globe to come enjoy the Penobscot River, and even today Atlantic salmon and other species continue to journey back to our region.

The Veazie Salmon Club is working hard to promote awareness and provide education about our region’s rich waterway history and unique heritage. How we can protect our natural resources for the next generations as we head into the future?  Providing education into rich fishing traditions, sharing local heritage, promoting scholarships, fly casting lessons, fly tying, plus hosting frequent informational environmental and scientific presentations are just a few activities happening at The Veazie Salmon Club!

We have a year-round facility located at 30 Old County Road in Veazie right on the river bank. River access with a great view which is open to the public and all are welcome to enjoy anytime.

We would greatly appreciate any and all support to help spread the word about our Saturday May 11th event from 7am – 2:30pm. Attached is the flyer outlining our event. Any and all donation considerations would also help as we are a small crew trying to add big value to our region!

Please come join and thanking you in advance for your support!
