Welcome to the Web site of the Washington County Maryland Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America. Our chapter was founded in 1947.
We are one of over 350 national chapters and one of 15 chapters in Maryland. Our chapter is located in beautiful Washington County Maryland along the Conococheague Creek.
This site was started in early 2008 and seems to help keep members up to date with activities held at our club. We have been very fortunate to have held many State and National Events this year, with many of our visitors being very pleased with what they experienced while visiting our grounds and this part of Maryland. Many thanks go out to the dedicated volunteers who put in many hours to make all of our events a success.
