The Spring Valley Walleye Club, Inc. was founded in 1990 by a group of local fisherman interested in preserving and promoting the walleye and sauger fishery of the Illinois River.
The stated purpose of the SVWC is the protection and conservation of the Illinois River and the wildlife therein. All proceeds from the annual MWC tournament (as well as all other projects) go right back into the Illinois River fish (sauger) stocking program.
Annual Spring Valley Walleye Club donations: .
- Illinois DNR fish stocking program = $5,000.00
- Maintain & upkeep Barto Landing
The SVWC project income keeps the usage at Barto Landing free for everyone .
Annual Club dues is $20.00 !!
The annual $20.00 membership dues can be paid anytime from January 1st to November 1st.
ANYONE can be a member of the SVWC. Many of our members are not fishermen. They are just everyday people interested in helping us help the river system.
