Not a member, join us as a guest for $10 every meeting. If you wish to join, we will deduct it from your upcoming dues payment. We are told the food is fantastic and no one in the area has our quality of speakers! (The largest Multi-Species fishing club in the Chicago Area for a reason).

How Good of a Value for Your Fishing Dollar is Riverside Fishing Club?

You get all of the following: 

  • 12 events a year
  • 10 club meetings per year (once a month) which includes a professional speaker, good food, plus coffee and cookies.  A fishing tackle raffle and a 50/50 raffle, plus fishing reports by members to keep you-up-to-date on where their hitting.  Fishing outings during the year with members, some which include professional fishing guides. 
  • A fishing “swap meet” held in April where you can sell and/or buy all sorts of fishing tackle and outdoor stuff.
  • Free monthly Midwest Outdoor magazine subscription, a $15 a year value.
  • A member Christmas Party in December featuring a great meal with over 12 entries to choose from.   Plus free door prize raffles for attendees and their guest.  You easily get free, at least $15 worth of value. 
  • An open cash bar serving beer, wine, mix drinks, soda and water at all the meetings.

You get all this for $60 a year for a single membership or $85 for a family membership.  Adding up your dues plus the free values you receive, can bring the cost of a single membership to as low as $2.70 a month per event.  On a family membership, assuming two people, the monthly cost can be as low as $1.35 per person, even lower for more than two people in a family membership.  

Where else can you get this much value for your money!
