The Yough Walleye Association was formed in 1992.  We are a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to raise money for the purchase and stocking of baby walleye into the Youghiogheny Reservoir, located in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  We're also very involved in projects that improve the habitat of the fishery by placing various structures, including recycled Christmas trees, into the lake and adding limestone to some of the in-flowing creeks to help improve the water Ph level.

        Meetings are held at the Hutchinson Sportsman Club located in Hopwood, PA on the first Tuesday of every month at 7 PM.  Annual membership dues are $10 and allows access to fish the club's scheduled members-only tournaments, which can be found by clicking here.
